Small clip that attaches to the edge of the spool. Holds the end of the filament in place so it doesn't unraveling when in storage.

Updated version can be found here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:42528

-- Octave Natural ABS


Use the "Up Spool Clip" for the OEM Afinia / Up! filament and the "Octave Spool Clip" for filament that comes from octave.com. You will probably need to adjust the orientation before printing.

Great idea; simple and effective, already printed a few for my 4 spools - thanks!

These are Awesome!!! Thankyou for such good clips! :-)
These are nice and compact compared to others and they hold perfectly for both UP & Octave spools. Printed on an UP!
The Octave clips work for the other suppliers such as -
Bilby CNC
3D Printer Gear.


Printed one in PLA. Clipped onto the Octave spool pretty well, but it didn't hold the filament! I printed using ReplicatorG on a Makerbot Replicator1. 

I added a new version of the Octave clip that is more likely to work with other printers and plastics.

ha, yeah, I'll update the description to be more clear.

For when it's not in use! Cool. Took me a minute :P
