Spool holder for standard 1kg filament?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Just received my UM3. It has been quite the learning experience - some good some bad.

For one, it came with the feeder tension too tight and nothing about this in the setup guide. Lots of wasted and ground filament to figure that one out.

Anywho.. What is everyone using to hold standard 1kg filament spools? This alone has been a source of frustration so far. For such an expensive machine, it should include a standard size spool.

Thank you

It does not appear to fit non-UM spools. My MH Pro ABS spool only fits on one direction. I printed a top mounted single spool holder and so far it is serving its purpose for now.

Did you use the file link to print a piece?

Another work around would be to flip the AA and BB cores in the slots and then flip the Print material and support material in the back to spool in the proper direction.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
