Works great! Thank you :) The default size was a perfect fit for my MakerFarm iv3.

This object did not fit in the hatchbox filament spool, fyi. Fit the holder as designed, just the hole/spacing in the spool didn't allow the extra height added by this "smoother".

Thanks for posting it. The spool holder of my i3v makes strange noises with some spools so I am printing one now. Two suggestions if I may, 1. add something like $fn=180; at the beginning of the scad file. It will make the part smoother. 2. Since this is a scad design, make it customizable (details here http://customizer.makerbot.com/docs) with knobs for total length and inner slot's thickness. Thanks again for a great idea.

Thanks for the suggestions! This was the very first thing I made in OpenSCAD, and I was only just learning it, so there is definitely room for improvement. That being said, it's always just worked for me so I never had the need to revisit the project. Any remixes are welcome, though!
