3D-printable split filament spool with threaded joint (135 mm)cults3d.com
This 3D-printable filament spool measures 135 mm i diameter (Ã¢ÂÂ 5 inches). Fully winded it contains approximately 350 grams of filament (Ã¢ÂÂ 12 ounces). It fits shafts with a diameter of 16 mm or smaller.The spool is made of two separate parts with a female and male threaded connection. The design can therefore be 3D-printed without the need of support material.As an accessory we also supply an axel which can be used with a power-drill to facilitate winding of new filament onto the spool.The video above shows how to assemble the 3D-printed spool and use a power-drill to fill it with TPU flexible rubber-like filament.
It's not that easy to find a solution to make sure the filament doesn't get stuck during a print. After hours of browsing thingiverse, failing with a couple of spool holder designs and a ton of canceled prints because of filaments knots I started from scratch and came up with a new approach: the filament duck ("inspired" by a duckbill).

with this part you can keep clean the filament (no dust inside the extruder) 1,75 or 3 mm on your printer. You can place it everywhere....up to you :-)size D24 x 13mmcut out a little piece of sponge (D20 x 10mm) and put it inside the sponge-holder...make sure that the sponge not opposes friction on the filament

simple part that sits under the power connector, allowing you to run the filament under the cord and stop the annoying squeaking noises of the filament rubbing against the feeder.Added a tab that goes under the printer to take the stress if the filament spool gets tangled.
