Improved Filament Spool Holder (with optional motor)

If you need a spool holder that does the job and has an optional mounting area for a DC brushless motor, here it is. I still need some refinement of the motorization option. But it’s otherwise functional.

Sure, there were quite a few other spool holders. None of the ones I browsed on Thingiverse had a license I liked. So I created my own.

Feel free to use or modify it! If anyone has suggestions post them up and I’ll accomodate them if they’re something I need.

And I also shot a video of putting it together. Along with the features that I’ve added in so far.

Cheapest EBay Filament! Good Deal or Total Junk?

In our new series of videos on YouTube we ask an important question. Is the cheapest PLA 3D Printer filament on EBay a shrewd deal or total garbage?

Initially I’ve weighed out the filament. And over the following weeks I’ll be printing with the entire 2.2lb (1kg) spool to see if it’s worth your hard earned US dollars.

So join me in the shop to see if the lowest priced PLA 3D Printer filament is any good.
