Good job!

For the filament adapter, you could use something like I've done with a fully printed filament spool enclosure or "rotating dry box".

I created a two piece ball to thread the filament thru. Granted it's not air tight but at least there isn't much open space around the filament.

Wow your project takes things to an all other level! Very impressive!

tks. I tried going the route you did but could not find any suitable Tupperware containers. Looks like you solved that!

Whoa, that's a fantastic idea. I've been wanting to print an enclosed spool holder but haven't been able to justify printing one entirely. Using a Tupperware container is genius!

Thanks for the attribution - so glad to see the Fusion file going to good use in such creative designs. Happy "making," cheers!

Glad you like the idea! Genius, I wouldn’t go that far but thanks! Hahaha!
Now that I have you here, I want to say that I was curious about the threads you used on the hub bolt and nut and the trapezoidal threads... For some reason, they print great! I re-did the threads on the M10 bolt and nuts with 2mm pith trapezoidal and it work’s perfectly first time!
I learned something valuable today thanks to you!
