Thank you for your help @eyeballs !

I suppose it is clear what we're asking with 'H'? When you have finished your reel of filament, feel free to edit your answer and fill in the weight of an empty spool. Thanks.

**Main spool differences:**

- inner core diameter 52mm (Ultimaker and ICE spools) / 53mm (colorFabb)

- Ultimaker (old) and ICE spools have spokes / colorFabb spools have a free ring on outer edge (=easier to make filament clamps slide around edge)

- rest seems fairly "standard spool"

32 minutes ago, SandervG said:

The original placement is not quite convenient for second spool changing (you must unload first spool)

Also 2.3kg spools are too big and don't fit between holder and table (they are also too wide for the original holder)

I started with 130mm universal filament spool holder - multiple lengths by ther00t ( https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2459115 )

I designed and printed arms for these holders. They have series of holes to put a rubber band that works as brake (friction is too low and spools unwind themselves)

Hi gr5,

An outer diameter of the spool (G) of 102mm? You mean 201mm?

@tomnagelOops. I had posted radius. Fixed. I will update empty weight when I have an empty spool.

- SandervG unpinned this topic

Thanks everyone for helping us out! It's much appreciated. Your information has been very valuable

@starbuck , you've been selected as the recipient of the free reel of filament! Congratulations. I'll send you a DM to exchange some more information!

Awesome!! Thanks @SandervG!!!
