After about a year using this holder, I figured out I was getting a slight underextrusion from the spool not spinning smoothly on this holder. For now, I've printed a different holder (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1001312) and things have improved. You'd think with bearings, it would run smoothly, but mine doesn't. I actually have friction marks on 2 wheels where the spool slides on the wheel instead of the bearing turning.

Does anyone else that is using this design have or had this problem?

Oh good, was on the other print. Never mind. Thanks

Hi, I am printing this now but looks like there is another part missing besides the wheels which I found them on the previous print. The two sliding parts (outer pieces) the bases but the inner part that locks the wheels in place is not there. There should be 3 parts but only 2 in the download.

Would you mind supplying the cad files? I would like to make a ptfe guide part that fits on the rail that has a 4mm hole going down to 2mm so that a ptfe tube 4mm OD 2mm ID can be held firm at the rail. I have made this but the profile of the rail is not quite a match.


I used FreeCAD to make this remix. Just now uploaded the files. Took me a while to track them down.

this is a remix from what? i don't find the wheels...

where did you find the wheel stl at?

This is a remix. I didn't change the lock part or the wheel part.

Wheel is not included in the download which is why I believe he is asking.
I had to download the original to get that also.
