Good work!
Can you use the stock metal horizontal cilinder to hold the spool instead to print this or does it have a different diameter? Thanks!

it does not fit, diameter is not the problem, the spoolholder is wider than the length of the original cylinder

Oh... I asked this because I would like adding a bearing cilinder to reduce the friction between the tube and the spool, and there are bearing supports for the stock cilinder.

In my first try, ive had a cylinder with bearrings too. But the friction was much to low and the spool does a turn much to far and the filament starts to tangle (you need just a short feeding movement and the spool did 3 or 4 turns). So you need some friction to prevent excessive movement of the spool.
