This is a filament holder for large filament spools like 1.6 and 2.0 kilogram types. It can also be used for smaller spools, like 1kg or 0.6kg if you use a 6mm pin in one of the holes of the filament holder.
Created the XXL model with extra long holder shaft, for even bigger spools.
Let me know what you think of it :-)
The filament holder is designed to be made out of ABS with the Da Vinci 1.0 Pro and it fits directly on the back of the printer. There is no need for printing with support, only be sure to print slowly and use Kapton tape and ABS slurry or hairspray.
Because of the direct placement on the back of the printer, there is also a filament feeder to make space between the filament spool and the back of the printer. Without this feeder, the filament would get stuck between the spool and the back of the printer.
Made it? Show your picture please. Love to get some feedback.
Also, consider sending me a tip as a token of appreciation.
Designed to be printed without supports, with 25% infill and WITH a 10mm Brim to get the thing stuck to the kapton tape. Be sure to print SLOWLY (maximum 20mm/sec)
Use sandpaper to smoothen the holder so the spool can rotate freely
Why I designed this
I got mad about not having a filament holder at this printer, so I build one.
I think XYZPrinting should have provided one with this OPEN filament printer
Perfect filament filter
