The holes are for 1.75. I didn't realize to alter before printing. I'll take some heat and widen those holes before testing. Hopefully this is the only difference to make it work with 2.85.

Hmmm maybe make both parts larger on Z to make everything thicker? or there might not be enough "space" to widen to 2.85mm

120 mm = 4.7 inches?

Yes. That us the hub diameter (the inside circle the filament wraps around) the spool of course is larger 160mm iirc

Thanks! Sorry, my brain was broken at first. Do you know about how much filament this can hold? 15m test samples?

Also, thanks for your YouTube channel! Really enjoyed the Slinky video.

I am not sure to be honest I specifically designed it to hold my maker box samples which I believe are 50 grams roughly it did just barely hold the 75 gram sample that was included in one of this month samples but just barely

Sorry to take months to reply, but I went off and got a lot more experience. You're right, these are perfect for the Makerboxes! Thanks for designing these! Did you do the screw part manually or did you have a design tool?

Wow, thanks for quick response! 50g of PLA is just under 15m, and 75g would be 22m. This is a handy calculator: http://3deee.ch/3deeeMaterialCalculator4.php
