3D Printing Nerd Spool Holder Contest Design.
I designed this spool holder and filament guide in Fusion 360.
I seperated the filament guide from the spool holder for those that would rather not intergrate the guide. Both .stl's have been uploaded. Both pieces were printed in PLA. You may find better strength printing with a stronger filament.
I used Simplify3d as my slicer. You will need to adjust the model in your slicer to print upright like that in the photo. Remember to reset to centre. The filament guide will need to be rotated to 210 degrees on the x axis. The Holder will need to be rotated to -90 degrees on the y axis.
For best printing results print with supports turned on. The filament guide is best to be printed at 100% infill and will take approximately 40mins to print (it did on my Tornado).
I printed the holder with 20% infill and it had good strength for PLA. Support will need to be turned on for the best result. The holder took approximately 10.5hrs.
This holder is designed to fit a maximum filament reel size of 200mm*105mm with an internal diameter of 55mm.
I've uploaded my original design before I added the spool guide and my brand name, in case people would prefer the basic model. "holder version 2 v1"
