The spool holder really works well. Its simple, effective and didn't take long to print. However, I wish I hadn't wasted three hours printing the cuff though...it just doesn't work in my application. If you spool from the bottom, the cuff just slides out and interferes with the travel of the filament.

Yeah, the this cuff is a little problematic. Try this one instead: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1010629 - it prints up much more quickly and works better.

Awesome...that looks much more effective. The pic for that filament clip is exactly the orientation that I spool out my filament. Thanks!!!!

HAHAHAHA - love the description! Looks like I print this just in time to get a filament cup as well :)

Can't wait to see how it turns out!

Just add this design:

And you have a 100% 3D printed spool holder!

Awesome Design.
Simple, Strong, and using Common Components.
I like the metal bearings. Durable, and quick.

no need for metal bearing. just print plastic. keeping it as printable as possible.
