We use this connection to the girder for printing with our own filament label < by ctrl design >girder is 7 cm thick.you can also use the solid file for every other dimension and just screw it onto the place you want to use it.
This is a full redesign of my popular, but old and relatively weak spool holder that I designed nearly two years ago...Old, Obsolete Spool Holder:http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:290064Here's a video of me explaining everything you need to know about the redesign...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyQ8u1Kn0mM&feature=youtu.beThis new design is 100% better - I completely redesigned my screws and spinner bolts for better tolerance for 3d Printing... My old screws were good if they were machined, but they were way too fine to be 3D printed well... So I made the threading much better and made the screws much stronger... I also added a lot of structural features that I explain in the video...Here's a list of what I did in the new design.Made both arms (the base and the spinner) 2.5mm shorter in height, I also added fillets to every corner so every contour is nice and rounded.Redid the bolt pattern and made that easier on the hand while spinning the spinner bolt.Increased the diameter of the screws and added 45 degree chamfers for strength... Screws are very strong now.Redid all the threading... This will thread smooth and tight right off the printer - I had 100% success rate on prints.Added a hole on the lower Rods to hold ends of filament to keep them from unraveling or raveling in - resulting in getting the spool tangled up.This is now about a 33% decrease in total print time from my old design... Overall, it should take about 6-7 hours to print an entire holder on a standard .2mm layer setting... But you can speed it up by going .3mm and everything will be perfect... Infill is not a big issue... 15-20% should do it... If you want everything to look nice on the outside - do 3 perimeter shells.Other than all of that - this should work for everyone and will fit on 95% of spools... The only two spools that I know do not fit are Makerbot's newer long, skinny spools and Taulman spools... Which I actually made a spool holder specifically for... You can find the Taulman spool holder here... http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:938437**I hope you find this spool holder useful... Thanks for reading... ENJOY!!!
Here's a video explaining the spool holder...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcPFLtofpFk&feature=youtu.beThis is my solution to fix common problems related to Taulman brand Spools... This design is based roughly on a popular Spool holder design I made a few years ago... http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:290064 ...Taulman makes great filament, but their spools are packed to the brim, very tight, with no place the keep the end of the filament controlled... This causes a lot of the spool to completely unwind everywhere... You can either cut it off and waste the filament, or try to wrap it back up and risk getting a snag or your spool locking up later while printing.... My spool holder has a place to keep the end of the filament held... And lockers which lock the spool in place - restricting it from spinning when you don't want it to spin... The dimensions of the spool holder are near perfect, so everything will fit and screw in well - even on low resolution...Thanks for viewing my spool holder - be sure to like it... I hope you find it useful!!!
This spool holder is designed like a modular rack, you can to put many spools as you want in vertical form.And for easy changing spool you only need to pull up the roll and change for another one.This model have two options to being used:You can put the modular rack on a table or in the floor.If prefer, you can use the wall mount (incorporated in the design) to put the rack in the wall to a few meter up from the floor.For my next version i want make and integrateA filament guide (1.75mm and 3mm)*A system for stopping retraction.This model is flexible in his design, you can make some accessories and change the configuration for aumentar its productivity.Enjoy!!!!
