Stand and Track Supporting 300mm Spools for Multiple Mechanism Auto-Rewind Spool Holder

I have an additional request: I would like to use it with a spool of 2,5 Kg, but the cap with the gear side is to wide for a Spool with an inner hole of 5 cm and 10 cm wide (too much stays out of the hole). Could you please make one like the nut_v1.1 where it can get more into the spool to allow the same spool holder to be used. With the current nut is missing just 1 cm to accommodate for the 10 cm wide spool.

Wondering if I should actually post this into the parent spool holder Thing since this is more about accommodating wider spools than needing a larger external diameter - let me know if I should re-post my comment there.

no need to re-post on the other page.

I'll check on this and see if it is possible to support your request, still allow for some of the larger ID spools people have requested, and print without support with a common cap/nut.

if not, I may have to just make a one-off piece for you that will work for all of your spools, but not support large ID spools.

will let you know.....

Thanks @eal69 - printing so I can replace my last spool holder with spring with yours.

I am quite happy with how your model works - 2 weeks after printing everyday with the MMU2 and no rewind issue with any of my 8 holders!

I am really glad to hear that the spool holders are working reliably for you.

please let me know if you have additional ideas for variants or improvements in the future.

It worked fine - thanks again!

It would be nice if you could modify the track to include the spring option
