Keep things in place on a 3/4" PVC pipe. I use these to keep my spools from wandering all over during a print job. I started with gsterley's Solidoodle Spool Holder Mk2, but now use them with my own. They keep a tight grip on the pipe but flex to accommodate variances in pipe diameter.


Print with 10% infill. I stopped the print on the second photo included so you could see the internal structure. You need two to hold a spool in place.

This thing works great and as an added bonus plays a song while printing on my Makerbot clone.
Thanks, Chris

I'm in need of one with a 5/8" center. Any chance you could post the CAD files?

I really need to redesign it for 1/2" (fewer teeth) but you could try scaling it by (1/2)/(3/4)=0.6666667 in Repetier or whatever you're using to place and slice the nut, and see if that will be close enough to get by until I can do it.

They work great! Any chance you could build one for 1/2" PVC as well?
