3D Printer Acrylic Spool Holder for up to 3Kg Filament Rolls
There must be hundreds of spool holders you can make yourself. We tried a half-dozen of them before giving up. Some only worked for a single spool width or spool size. Others broke after about a week. Still others were complicated to make and required bearings that had to be perfectly adjusted to work.
So we set out to design a spool holder with the following characteristics:
1. Must work with 99% of spool sizes and widths.
2. Must be reliable for 24/7 use.
3. Must look cool.
4. Be relatively inexpensive.
The result is an all-acrylic spool holder that fits in perfectly with the design of our all acrylic enclosures, and can take a beating will holding the heavy 2.5Kg spools we use in production. Nothing to wear out, nothing to adjust, just a simple rod holding up a spool of filament.
Comes with all of the 1/4” acrylic, the spool, and all required screws and nuts. If you have problems with the spool holder moving during operation there's an optional connector you can print yourself to attach it to the side of an enclosure. (May require that you drill holes to secure it.)
