They provide a groove for guiding the line. This avoids overlaping, like on you photo.

i can disregard the overlapping of the fishingline because the diameter of the line is very low. so the effect is very minor...

what exactly is this for? is there a printer that prints using fishing line as filament?

Hi,

hehe that sounds funny, but no it isnt. The printers are using fishingline as translation of movement. The Motor rotates and wind up the line. google for RichRap.
The fishing line is a replacement for the toothbelt.

ahh gotcha, never seen that before!
