3D printed miniature filament spools. This is just a small project I did in between bigger projects. They ended up a bit cute and colorful so I decided to share them. This is a mix between high and low resolution FDM printing. I achieved the filament look by printing the filament at 0,4mm layer height, the spools themselves where done using best possible resolution. The spools are snap fit, but since I did not calibrate the printer profile between filament colors I used a dab of glue on few of them. This was an experiment too see how small I was able to make them, these are too small to work as keychain

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts
Not for children under 3 yrs.
Using 0,4mm Nozzle
Print the spool at best possible resolution
Print the filament cylinder at 0,4mm layer height. The slicer might complain that the layer is the same size as the nozzle, but the model is so small that it doesn't matter
Print these using 3 shells to make sure the filament is made out of a continuous path
