Yet another spool holder for the Flux Delta

The black one is a 1 kg spool

This is my set up and thanks you all.

is that on Thingverse?

Yes, all of them from Thing verse. The base design by @drmaettu

I made some detail changes recently, i highly recommend to download the file again if you like to print it. This is for the http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1515792 Spool holder file

Im actually printing it (for the second time). My only recommendation (so far) is for people to flip the holder 180 degree. When printing, I need to create supports and the supports was exactly under the wheel holder. Trying to remove all that support, left the print useless. I flipped it and well, i’ll tell you in about in 1 1/2 hours later…

Thanks I was going to print but I saw your comment before start to print, just a question what was the build time on just the holder? I got 3 hours and 47 minutes I don’t know if this long is normal?

i had it at .3 resolution with support, roughly 2 hrs 20 minutes…but I am using the G-Code From Simplify 3D…more control and a bit faster (i even have it set at a slow speed due to the number of supports required).

You might have it set at around 2.5 in your FLUX settings…set it to 3 and see how long it takes…also I have the support set at 8% infill (not the infill of the Print which i have at 10%).

S3D has those options and helps with the build time.

Thanks, like you said I have 2.5 in layer and the infill in support was much higher. I also have simplify3d and I’m learning on tweaking the parameters to learn how can I speed up a print without ruined.

I already flipped the original file, so you dont have to flip it by yourself anymore. I printed with raft and dense support layer, but also having problems to get off the supports. Infill is 30%, layer height 0.2 and the speeds about 50mm/s and like that, it will print for about 4 hours (raft took half an hour alrrady)

Any Suggestions for a better support removal? I will try maybe with a support-part separation of 2 layers

Well, this was my first print, as you can see, One side came out perfect, whereas the otherside (with supports) came out crappy since the supports were right underneath the wheel carriage and made it worthless.

Uploading…
Uploading…

Printed a second version with the wheelcarriage facing up, and much better…either or, thank you for your design, finishing the print on the rest of it and I will be complete. This is exactly what I was looking for, thanks.

@drmaettu - I actually rarely print with rafts anymore. I find that they don’t really give much benefit. The one exception is if it’s something large and flat

I think I’ve come up with a way that we can position the filament above the Flux rather than outside of it. If you remove the cover entirely, there’s the 3rd side that it could ti on nicely. I positioned my blue squirrel where I’m suggesting in the picture. Currently the outside brace is too tall to work there, but I think it could be super nice.

Dude…

Your chemical engineer’ dude is cool…never thought of that…Hmmm…

That should definitely be in the trophy room.

Lol. That’s just from here - http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1172630

I was having an issue with the Dremel pad getting a bit caught in the feeder, so I was looking for a scrap project that would act as a good buffer. I had this around, and he works perfect.

Is this Spool holder for a 1 kg Spoiler?

as far as i can measure, as long as your filament is under 28 cm in diameter you could easily fit a 1 kg filament on it.

I made a filament guide clip that makes using an external roll easier.

And here is my remix of a spool roller that works really well for me with my filament guide.
