This allows for smaller spools like the ones used by Matterhackers to fit on the back of the unit.

It may also work for larger spools, but this is currently untested.


Print 2 male, 2 female, and one dust filter.

This can also be done in the original SCAD files by defining a spool in vitamins/spools.scad:
spool_160x85 = [160, 85, 40, 3, 3, 40, 160, 160];

Setting the new spool in conf/dibond_config.scad;
spool = spool_160x85;

And changing the angle in spool_holder.scad to align the screws with the cutout on the base
angle = 28.8

At least the dust filter should be printed in ABS, as the PLA is too stiff and the brackets will break when attempting to snap them onto the male piece. I have no ABS, so I just ended up using the dust filter that came with the kit.

Hows the Matter Hackers filament working for you?

I'm fairly inexperienced with 3D printing, but I have used several of their colors of 3mm PLA without any problems. Size is consistently right around 3.00 and the colors have been very bright and consistent. Being the cheapest place I can find in the US with free 2-3 day shipping doesn't hurt either. :)
