3D printing has revolutionized the manufacturing process, and can produce amazing results. Many things must come together to produce the perfect print. When the machine is running, filament must constantly flow to the extruder to create a seamless product. Spool holders can be purchased online, however, with a powerful tool like BoXZY, you are able to produce a filament holder yourself.
The design consists of two mahogany pieces at either end of the spool for strength and durability. A wooden rod is laid in between the mahogany pieces to hold the weight of the filament. A printed cap is placed on either end of the wooden legs to secure the rod in place.
This project was designed by Chris Ference for Boxzy CNC. Boxzy takes the power of three machines into one. Check more projects like this by visiting www.boxzy.com/projects
The main body of the spool holder consists of 2 walnut pieces, milled on Boxzy. The end caps can be customized to fit whatever size dowel rod you have. If you do not have a dowel rod, feel free to print the spoolHolderPart3.stl
