Filament without spool

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

i hope my question is not too stupid, but I think it is!

I got some new filament from Faberdashery. Its really great. But I got the big problem that its

coming without the spool. And heres my question: How to get the filament reasonableon the old spool.

Its twisting and fully out of controle :O . What to do.

Thanks for your answers.

Chris

I just put it on the floor behind the printer. Make sure to uncurl the spiral between the stock and the printer every now and then. You can have a big "spring" like structure between the stock and the printer so that you can leave it alone for hours on end....

I got some filament from diamondage which was spooless.

I wanted to use the least amount of plastic possible, so i made these with some heavy duty cardboard from a large lcd tv box:
