The Spool holder works a treat on my FlashForge Finder. I found that the shaft for the 1kg spools added too much friction so i remixed another spool adaptor to work on the 20mm shaft. (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3631339)

i made a filament feeder for the extruder (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3627241)

I have made an updated version of my spoolholder with refined design, and less spoolfriction. Check it out here:

Thank you for the adaptor design! I incorporated some of this into my new spoolholder version =)

Flashforge Finder & Inventor II - Overhead Spoolholder v2.0

Great idea! =)

This is just what I need, but do you know if this would fit the Inventor II? I have the one that hangs on the side and when the roll get lighter, sometimes it will bind up and cause problems. This would be perfect if it fits.

Hi!
I am not familiar with the Inventor II, but did a quick search and it seems like the chassie is the same, except the Inventor II is a bit deeper than the Finder. I bet it would work just fine as the width is the same, but to be sure, you could print just a small piece of the raiser (the end that holds on to the chassie edge) and see if it fits. If it doesnt, it should be fairly easy to alter the gap :)

Here is the comparison of the chassie dimmensions:

FINDER
Dimensions (W x H x D)
16.54 x 16.54 x 16.54" / 420.00 x 420.00 x 420.00 mm

INVENTOR II
Dimensions (W x H x D)
16.54 x 16.54 x 22.44" / 420.00 x 420.00 x 570.00 mm

It's almost perfect fit. Not sure if the Inventor II is a bit thicker or if it's just the way it printed. I need to file a tiny bit to open up the lower gap on the raisers and it should fit just fine. Thanks for sharing.

Hi,
Did it work out with my spoolholder for your Flashforge Inventor II? =)

I have made an updated version of this, check it out here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3680561

Works great. Only problem I had was a roll where the end of the filament was really jammed hard into the spool and wouldn't let go. It pulled the spool, rod, holder and all over. No other issues. Thanks for sharing.

Hope it works out!
