Since I replaced the stock spool holder with my own variation ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:49596 ) I needed a new filament guide. Here's my original attempt at that.

I'm not sure how well it'll work, but it fits perfectly...we'll see how well it does at guiding the filament.

I'm sure this won't be my only pass at this.


This one is a bit tricky. I didn't really design it with support in mind, I'll definitely need to make a pass at requiring less support. Luckily my other printer (Afinia/UP!) prints support like a champ.

I salvaged the bolt and nut from the original spool holder (one of the two bottom pieces that have bearings in them) since that hole isn't threaded. It's a 12mm bolt and a 7mm nut (I think).
