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.
Filament Guide Ultimaker 2youmagine.com
The Stilt goes through the hole. Glue the Stilt into the Plate. Then put the Roller on the Stilt - it should move freely. Put the Top on the end of the Stilt - done. Print each part speratly so you don't get spilkes from the retraction. I printed mine with PLA, 210°C, 75 Bed, 50mm/s, 0.1 Layer Height, 0.3 initial Layer height and 100% infill.Happy printing!
Filament cleaner for Ultimakeryoumagine.com
It may be a good idea to lead your filament through a sponge to automatically clean off dust, hairs etc. Couldn't find one for my Ultimaker, so I made a very simple one with OpenSCAD. I think the sponge causes very little friction, so no issues with printing and retraction. I'll see how it goes, maybe change the design a bit.Using the scad-file it's very easy to change dimensions if it doesn't fit your printer or if you want a different thickness etc. I made some stl-files with and without screw attachment and square cutouts./cleaner.stl/ - simplest one, just clamp it on the filament feeder /cleaner_screw.stl/ - can be attached to the feeder using a screw that's already there /cleaner_squares_screw.stl/ and /cleaner_squares.stl /are the same with some squares cut out in sides and back to make it even lighter. More difficult to print though.Cut a piece of sponge and feed the filament through./Just a copy of my thing at //http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:133353 // :)/ http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:133353

Alternative hub for loose filament Spoolyoumagine.com
This is a modification of Woofy's Spool Holder for loose filament:https://www.youmagine.com/designs/spool-holder-for-loose-filament Print 6 hooks and 6 arms from this design and add the modified Hub.You might want to print one or two spacers if you don't like how close the spool is from the wall (or where ever you fix it)This allows for the spool to be mounted on an alternative spool holder like lRobertl low friction spoolholder:https://www.youmagine.com/designs/low-friction-um2-spoolholder Bare in mind that the loose filament holder is bigger than standard spools and that it won't fit the back of the UM2. https://www.youmagine.com/designs/spool-holder-for-loose-filament https://www.youmagine.com/designs/low-friction-um2-spoolholder
Filament guide with bearingyoumagine.com
For my machine I have filament spool standing on the floor, under the desk. I discovered that during printing filament has a contact with printer's upper corner. Simplest solution was to add some sort of guide.In my drawer I had spare 6001 bearing (28x12x8), some M8 washers and M6 screw.So I designed holder and reduction sleeve (12mm external diameter and 6mm internal hole)It's for MendelMax 1.5
