Picture of UP 3d Printer - 1kg Spool Holder and Filament Guide
I was really excited to try black ABS plastic on our UP 3d printer. When the spool arrived in the mail I realized that the 1 Kg spool would not fit the holder on the printer. Dilemma?? I think not. All I had to do was design and print a new holder.

 Before I could print a new holder for my larger spools, I needed to support the spool itself. I grabbed some scrap metal tubing and a scrap piece of plywood and rigged something up. When I got the spool back on, I supported the rig with my CPU.

Will this one work with a larger spool, with an OD of 250mm ?
