i would use this one. is better:


you dont need to think about overlapping by using a fishline with diameter under 0,15mm....

Spool for fishingline for 3D Printers, Nema 17, Spule fuer 3D Drucker

advertizing your own stuff without any facts is a bit rude, isn't it?

For sure the one you posted isn't better. Have you ever tried my design? I use it since 2000 printing hours on my Woodstock/Rostock printer. The perfect guide reduces the stress for the fishing line dramatically.

i made them out of aluminium, i think this will be more durable then plastic ;-)

Don't you think, that this is a comparism between apples and pears? ;)
The sharp edges of the aluminium part will add much more stress to the fishing line. Just give it a try before bad-mouth something.

These look great and im getting some printed for my 3d printer im building, im going to have to try and make some longer ones at some point as i need more travel for the tall rostock printer im building, any advice ?

I'd like to see the setup your using to hold these pulleys. Is the performance of this comparable to that of a hobbed driver? Cool idea man.
