Loose filament spooler with a electric hand Drill - addon


Recommended Posts

Posted · Loose filament spooler with a electric hand Drill - addon

I made this to be able to spool the loose filament faster, I know many people like the filament loose, but I don't.

Video:

 

There are two mounts, one for faberdashery spools (4 symmetric holes on the mid-center plastic) and Colorfabb (3 asymmetric holes). Also works with Smartmaterials pla plastic and probably much others.

I made this for the 100m packs of Faberdashery 1.75mm filament, using the Spool holder by creativetools as base.

@neotko I saw somewhere you also bought X/Y axis somewhere in Europe or I remember wrong. If you can link or write about it can be nice. Because my bed leveling Problems has nothing to do with bed itself,  it is just bended (like a banana) axisses from X/Y.

    Just updated the design, now it's easier to print two separated bases, and add the top to the one you need. I have not tested it XD but should work.

    Ahh, like it, will also start spooling my loose plastic...

    I noticed last week that the coil size of the faberdashery loose material is now a lot smaller than it was something like 1 year before..... annoying even if you have an adjustable spool holder like the one based on woofy's I use.

    Great!

    I just tested the second version and works perfect. I been spooling by hand this last months 700m of filament more or less and was a pain :D now I can use the electric screw driver or the drill. Saved me a lot of backache :)

    Updated the design with an addon for formfutura (or symmetric x4 holes), so the drill can be used upside down. Much better for my back issues. If someone wants the colorfabb I'll upload it soon since I'm running out of formfutura empty spool holders.
