  • This is my universal filament spool holder
  • It will provide smooth feeding of your filament
  • Self centers because of 3 wings and the convex shape (not 4)
  • Note: This one was printed with PLA (Bio-Plastic), should work with ABS (LEGO Plastic) as well.

Compatible with K8200, 3drag and others

It should fit on any 3D-printer based on the 3drag like Velemann K8200 and many others. (SketchUp design included, feel free to extend it so that it fit your printer as well.)

  • Vellemann K8200
  • 3drag, and other based 3drag printers
  • your own printer as well 😉

You can use two different very common ball bearing sizes (16, 17 and 22 mm diameter)

Instructions

  • Just print two of them, then mount them on the spool axes with ball bearings attached to it.
  • Place your filament spool between two universal filament spool holders like so: )> ]-[ <(
  • The holder is very universal and can be used with many filament spools with different sizes and holes
