All existing solutions for a filament holder on the Zmorph printer that I found, did not work out. Yet the filament flow is essential for a good, regular printing quality.
So I designed my own one. It takes every size of filament roll that I had. It works very smoothly, the prints are more regular now. Feel free to use it; any feedback is appreciated.

Whenever possible I use ABS

How I Designed This

I used a "self made" graphical front end to OpenScad. It gives me fast access to some features like rotating, translating and coloring. It gives me the possibility to make parts visible/invisible and marked. Furthermore it shows me a construction tree and a library from which one can drag&drop new items. Parts that are used more often can be added to that library.
Anyone who is interested may contact me.

Thanks for sharing. I am working to print this now as I have also struggled with feeders. What did you use for rods and hardware?

Hi Bob

I'm glad if someone can use it. Actually it would fit on any printer with a few adjustments. For the wheels I took a threaded rod 5 mm, for the filament guide a round 8 mm aluminum profile. But you could also use a 5 mm Alu profile for the wheels. For the very first version I tried ball bearings,but in fact it just makes it more complicate and does not help anything.
I know have the same on both sides, works wonderful. I never had any problems with the filament since then.
If you take ABS as I did, you might have problems with long cracks. I heal them with a Hand-Extruder with the same ABS color. Works very well.
Hope this helps. Enjoy.
