Just hanging. It is held by the filament loop itself, while spreading it. It leans lightly against the feeder.

@fuh That seems a very smart idea that i like: only printed parts, fast printed, no more modifications needed.

Update:

I was a bit unhappy with the "just hanging" idea because occasionally, the ring slipped off and fell down. So I made a guide thingy for the ring. Updated on Youmagine.

Updated the ring design.

New in version 8 (vs. version 5): Now easier to assemble.
