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:

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
