Looking for a customizable and fully adjustable spool holder?
Well look no further! Here is the perfect design for you...
// Independently adjustable Ball Bearing sliders for smooth and quiet control
// Rigid yet modular construction
// Easily Interchangeable crossbars for variable width
// Compatible with any Dry Box (Makes an excellent companion for Multi Material Printers!)
What you'll need to find...
// 608 Ball Bearings (4x per roll of filament to be stored)
(20x in the example)
// 5/16" Diameter Metal Rod (2x)
(17.125in for each in the example, according to the box I used. For example, yours might be longer or shorter depending on what you enclose it with, or how many spools you want to add to it. In theory, it’s infinitely expandable. Might be a fun challenge to see who makes the longest version!)
// 3D printer filament (Though you probably knew that, lol)
(5 rolls in the example)
// (Optional) A Dry Box
(I highly recommend the 46qt weathertight tote from the Container Store)
What you'll need to print...
// Feet (1x) (Though you may need more if it is reaaaally long!)
// Brace (1x)
(6.5in in the example)
// Rollers (1x per roll of filament to be stored)
(5x in the example)
How to assemble it...
// Assembly is pretty easy and intuitive. Just follow the diagrams and the pictures!
// No adhesives or bolts required. Everything is snugly and securely pressure-fitted.
