Wanted a filament spool holder for my Printrbot Simple that was attached to the simple.

Designed to be able to print on a Printrbot Simple.


Print with about 15% fill and 2 walls. You don't want it to bend too much under the weight of a full spool.

Mount to the printrboard with small zip ties or m4 screws.

i just printed one but when I was installing the 1kg roll of pal I broke the cylinder in half but with some blue tape wrap around it is working really good

Great idea! Is this stable? I feel like it'd add a lot of weight to the left side. Also, what did you print with? Concerned that it could snap easily along one of the layer lines... Bear with me; just got my simple two weeks ago, still learning to trust it haha.

how did you attach this???

How much force does it take to unroll the spool of filament?

Hard to say. Sometimes I put a little Vaseline on the rod to keep things rolling smoothly.

This is awesome! Exactly what the Printrbot Simple needs. You are brilliant.
