Nice remix. Its always nice to see someone make my design work for them with an adjustments.
Thx for sharing.

Thanks, I originally started off with making a mount adapter for your holder, but I don't know if it would work or not and I liked the concept of the quick release for changing out spools. Thought it was much more practical in my opinion cause of the low-friction it wouldn't be nearly as much strain on the extruder motor.

I think the screw mount is better because it will be mounted verry sturdy. And having my printer mount attach to your printer in the same way, is not giving you anny advantage.

What program did you use to design this, cant find one that is easy to use

Freecad, it's my first attempt at using it. My tip if you use it, I switch between the Open Inventor mouse controls for controlling the camera and the cad mouse controls for doing operations like measuring. You can switch between them from the right context menu under Navigation Styles. I started off with this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avVNfIswkMU
