The UpBOX has a very well designed standard spool holder and cover for its Brand filament. The 1kg Up brand filament supplied by the company that produce the filament however do not fit as they are much wider.There are a few spool holder print files available but wanted my own. Plus this is the first design in 123D i have done moving from sketchup.And Enjoy
A filament spool stand inspired by an earlier design I posted. So far I've only printed the axle. It's shown being printed on a PRINTinZ printer plate in ABS. The part looks like it's on a raft, but that is just support structure for the curved surface. It stayed stuck to the plate through the whole print and came right off when I flexed the plate after printing.Most of the support circles are 1/2" thick, the large middle circle is .25" thick and the tiny circle in the middle is 1/8" thick. I thought about printing the supports in three colors and pausing at each of those thickness to make the change.Have fun with it!
I had four surplus bearings with a flange so I designed a spool stand frame that unwinds the spool smooth as can be. Print two of them and assemble with longscrews, washers and nuts or dowel rod spacers. I also designed a clamp to hold the spool stand in place on a small cart I have my 3D Printer on. Tap the three holes in the clamp (4-40) and assemble with 4-40 screws. Enjoy!
