Huxley Spool Holder

3D model description

I liked the eMaker style feet on their version of the Huxley so much that I had to hack together a matching version for a spool holder.

This thing operates on the same principle as other four bearing spool holders and is sized for Makerbot sized filament spools.

3D printing settings

You will need the following:

2x 150mm M6 threaded rod
2x 125mm M6 threaded rod
4x 626ZZ ball bearing
16x M6 nut
20x M6 internal tooth lock washer

Assemble as shown, making sure to place a lock washer in between the inside of the foot and the bearing. Inside dimensions are approximately 76mm x 100mm between feet although this is not mission critical. I find it works especially well with 1.75mm filament to feed the filament from the bottom to stop filament unraveling.
