PLA spool holder

I decided to design a spool system for my mendel. I had some y-bar-clamps laying around so, I just needed to have something to hold a bearing.

It turned out quite sturdy, also I like the idea to be able to easily swap a spool and allow for different sizes of spools.

See thingiverse [www.thingiverse.com] for molre details smiling smiley

Looks great! I just designed /made one myself. I'll get pics up too.

Mine is also a top mount and pretty universal, but it is a bit different from yours.

I made it with a "no tools" install in mind, but went ahead and added some M3 hardware
to lock barclamps down. Not really necessary tho.

It would be interesting to see others' designs as well .
