Just spotted this on an UM2. Has anyone got an stl file of this. Assume this is now being shipped with the latest versions as didn't have one of these with mine.

 

Seems like a good idea to support the feed

With some spools, I had a strong squeaking sound with the standard UM2 spool holder.

I plan to print the low friction spool holder, but for now I found a quick fix which seems to work very well, so I'd like to share it.

I covered a piece of paper with PTFE tape (3M PTFE-Film-Tape-5490) and put it between the spool and the standard spool holder.

I then did the same for the filament guide shown in the first pic of this post.

the squeaking sound is gone, and the friction is clearly strongly decreased.
