Good design!
What are the minimum and maximum Inner Diameter of the spools you can fit on that universal holder?

The end nuts run from about 48mm at the thinnest to 56mm at the widest. Because the nuts are tapered, if you have a skinny interior diameter, it may push the width beyond what will fit in the box. I usually stick to Hatcbox, esun, or Amazon basics at 2kg, and their centers are usually around 52-54mm. If you're looking for something beyond those parameters, I strongly suggest playing with Foreverwinter's Quick Change Universal Spool Holder - his file is fully parametric so it's really easy to modify. He already had it set to use the 608 bearings, so I only had to adjust the core height, and the diameters of the nuts. If I recall correctly, the way he had the history organized, the nut diameters are applied before the edge fillets, so after printing the min/max diameters are a little smaller. Hope that helps!

Yes, it helps a lot. Thanks to you! I'll try with your design since I print with spools that are around your dimensions (Amazon Basics, 3D Solutech and iPrint 3D).
