We are sorry to hear that you did not find the parts of the spool holder self-explanatory. This was an experimental design project aimed to create a spool holder that was 100% made of 3D-printed parts. Please watch the https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6ArZeWYSZE video for further usage clarification.

Please watch the video at this time in the timeline https://youtu.be/X6ArZeWYSZE?t=1m. You can use 1.75 mm filament which is the most common type of filament on the market. If you use a 3D printer with 3.0 or 2.85 mm filament, we recommend you use piece of wire, nail, or anything else with a similar diameter to 1.75 mm and fix it in place with a drop of glue.

We apologize for making you unhappy with our design of the spool holder. Our aim was not to make you confused.

We designed these parts as a favour to users who asked for the base to be adapted in the different sizes of extruded aluminium profiles.

Very nice design, which I have pretty much printed by now. After a lot of files-sorting...

There are so many pieces with no immediately recognizeable meaning/function to them.. like the bazillion bases with slightly different >names with no reference to function (for normal people not initiated into the aluminium-extrusion World)

The Centerring_and_lockingconenarrow.stl is another issue... I did not know narrow = if you want to use it to Lock it.
