Excellent. I have a Geeetech that comes with a piece of 20mm plastic tube to hold the spools, so having a customizable spool adapter is great. I printed 2 at 58mm and 2 at 60mm for the spool hubs and then 21mm with a little sanding for the 20mm shaft.

What makes this parametric? It doesn't seem to have any parametric qualities.
