Filament spool

With the printer becoming more and more reliable, longer prints are made and a filament spool was needed. The spool was made using a metal tube with printed PLA endpoints glued to it and some cardboard. The filament is kept resting on some M6 threaded rods.

The spool is hanging in a huxley frame. I may replace the frame with something else if I need to finnish the huxley, for now the rapstrap is working fine.

Today a 2 hour print and a 5 hour print were done without any help in the middle. Should order more PLA now...
