What support settings did you use for inside the spool?

Comments deleted.

Great job! Thanks for it! Any solution to avoid whipping in concave part?

Fixed it... it only took me a few months to figure it out haha. You need to disable Combing completely, this will increase the amount of retractions, but it will keep the mess down in the concave part as well as any other circular prints you need to make from here on out. If that doesn't work you can also play with your temperatures and print speeds.

I've also been having this problem

This is a great design, but can you put a rounded edge on the inner spool where the cord bends to start the wrap? That sharp edge cuts the cord with a lot of use.

While he doesn't make that improvement, you can use a hot metal to remove the sharp edge

Amazing job with making these, I have already printed 4 and I will probably print 10. They are amazing! :)

what supports did you use?

I didn't use any support ;)

Hello, I really like your design. I would like to use it as a free giveaway for my clients and change it. Is it okay for you?

I printed this on the CR-10, and I printed the part with the screw at 98% I believe. It turned out great, however when I tried to put my cord in I was afraid to twist it because it looked like it was going to break it at the end. I hope this works for other people, but for the Samsung charger it didn't work very well.

can i rent this in regular filament such ass abs or pla

I can print the files and send them to you, just make an order here ;)

Tolerance is basically 0 so the screws won't fit. Can you make the tolerances bigger? meanwhile i'll try to print one bigger
EDIT: I printed the screw piece and the middle part at 102%, works pretty good, maybe even 103 if your printer isn't that precise.
