1Kg Filament spool holder, made with the least amout of filament.
I needed an spool holder that was easy to use and swap rolls on.
most online models burn filament as it costs nothing...
So i decided to give it a shot and made one, this uses 9mm wooden rods with need to be cut to the right size.
This save quite alot of filament, and allows you to make a lot of them.
The rods are tightly snug in the connectors, only the 52mm spool hole adapter needs a few drops glue.
The spool holders will work with spools with holes of 32mm, for the 52mm holes you will need an adapter
to lift the spool enough not to let it touch the ground.
* i've also added the rods as 3D printing option.
just print the rods and use these as replacement for the wooden rods.
after printing make sure the holes are nice and round and remove any exces hairs and strings.
just push the rods in the connectors as shown in the picures.
they snug thight, repeatedly turning the rods or connectors while pushing the together works good.
clamping one end in a workbench works really well for this.
the 52 spool hole adapter will fit but a drop of glue on all the connecting corners will make sure it stays that way.
