Very simple design that is 100% effective. Works perfectly! Very innovative.

Very cool design! If it could fit 2020/2040 extrusions, it would be even better. Truly universal.

Does this work with a Da Vinci Junior?

Unfortunately, we don't have access to a Da Vinci Junior to be able to test it. You could just start by printing one of the halves and see if it fits.

Several have asked us to make a built plate assembly as small as possible for all the main parts of this spool holder. We managed to cram all parts onto a 140 x 140 mm build plate! :)

How do i mount this to the wanhao duplicator i3 plus?

Thanks for your comment. We have no adapter for that 3D printer. You can use the stand-alone version of the spool holder.


Does this work on an Anet A8?

Unfortunately, we don't have access to an Anet A8 3D printer. Probably you could hang the spool holder och the upper acrylic part, but for stability reasons, that is not optimal.

The other alternative is for you to print the holder and the wall-attachment adapter. Otherwise, you can use the tabletop adapter.
