This is a collection of parts I have used to make a real simple Filament Spool Holder.
I wanted a "sit on top" design that hugs the 2020 Aluminium Extrusion.
Some parts are from other designs here on Thingiverse.
Parts Required - (all supplied here .. but sources also below)
- 1x 300mm threaded 8mm Rod (Screwfix in the UK)
- 2x M8 / 8mm Wingnuts
- 4x 8mm large-ish flat washers
Insert the "collarinsert.stl" on the outside of each arm. This will support the 8mm rod.
I had one filament spool whose inner hole diameter was smaller than the 608_hub_2. I just used a forstner drillbit on a bench drill to make the hole the right size either side. (quicker than cading up a new piece)
I had to "drill" out the hubs and spacers with an 8mm drill bit due to the rough insides. (just made them slide on and off easier for a quick change). Otherwise you will find yourself screwing them onto the threaded rod. It is important that the Hub can rotate smoothly.
