I have tried every filament clip I could find and there are some good ones but none fit all my criteria. Some of the common problems I ran into were:
- Too long to fit on full spool
- Not tight enough
- Easily dislodged when spools stacked next to each other
I designed these to address those issues and so far they have been working very well. There is a 4mm wide version for MakerBot spools and a 5mm wide for other misc spools. Both are for 1.75mm filament.
I would recommend using a raft and going slow since these are small.
I use one shell and a high fill, at least 30 - 50%.
Getting the hole the exact right size is difficult, so you may need to drill it out.
