The previous versions of the Filament Carousel are attached directly to the Printer. To feed printers inside an enclosure I came up with this modified base for the #FilamentCarousel. It is especially meant for the popular IKEA "LACK" based enclosures, but can be used to feed through any board ore wire frame shelf.
The Filament is fed through an hole in the tabletop.
The hub and carrier are to be taken from the initial Filament Carousel.
This #FilamentCarousel is capable of extracting the filament refill coils directly from the bag. The filament can stay in its package where it is protected from dust and to a degree also from moisture.
See also the concept video on YouTube (sorry German for know).
To provide an overview see the Group Filament Carousel on thingiverse. Every one who is interested in invited to join!

Printing and Assembly
The base is to be printed upside down. The model contains all required support. I also provided an Version withe additional support inside the hole.
The clamp is to be printed on one of its sides, to obtain ideal layer orientation.
The assembly can be seen in this video. (The explanations are in German, but you will get the clue even if you don’t understand a single word.)
Preparation of the coils is also shown in an video. (Also German, but you will get the clue)
