How does the second spool load on reel?

Recommended Posts

It doesn't snap in. It is held in place with the arm that guides the filament. Not a super positive feel to retention but it works.

BTW - Due to the way the arm is designed it matters which way the filament is wound on the spool of some spools. For example, the spool design plus the direction of wind means you'll have to rig up some way to use Matterhacker's Pro filaments. I don't know about the others. It would have been nice the design was more universal.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
