If you have trouble assembling this try putting oil (I used olive oil) on the shaft and joining them with a rubber mallet. It went together and spins like a champ. If it seems like your spool is to wide/deep check out my remix and see if that helps.

It's so simple and works! Thanks!

Did you design it on openscad ?
Do you plan to release a customizable version where we can change the spool diameter?
I saw (and tried) http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:996367 but it resize the whole part so the support is not compatible with different size of spool holder !

By the way, this design is very simple and cool !

What was the problem with resizing?

I wannat to use the same support for all the spool holders but with the resize the spool holder hole is too small or too big.
So when you resize you need to print both path for a perfect fit :(

This one was designed to be a little more universal ... You might want to give that a try.

Yes you right !
I will try it :)

Hello, does the top part needs some support ? It seems to be a big hangover.

What diameter/type of spool does support this holder?

Nice design and fast to print!

Simple is the hardest thing!

I added the FilamentChallenge tag to your item. Hope that's OK.

thanks, I didn't notice I have to. :-)
