wanhao duplicator i3 alternative spool mount.

3D model description

I just dont like the stock spool holder. even though its metal it is still weak..

i find it sagging as soon as i put on a roll of filament.

here is an alternative to the stock holder. (much stiffer)

also has a hole for a lockdown screw so once you slide it on the frame you can lock it in place with a M3-.5x 16mm or longer. socket cap screw.. (might want to put a piece of tape where the screw contacts . it can leave a circular scratch from the screw in the paint.)

3D printing settings

in cura.

0.2mm layer height

2mm shell thickness

1mm top and bottom thickness

15% overlap infill

grid infill

  • 3D file format: STL
  • 3D model size: X 40 × Y 157 × Z 50.9 mm
