This is my very own spool holder made exclusively for the wonderful M3D printer which is currently on Kickstarter.
My friend received his and here it is next to it!!!
See the campaign here:
I am so excited to get this little printer, I had to create this as an homage to the design and also to have something while I wait for the little wonder to arrive at my doorstep in December.
I 3D printed it at work on a 3D touch machine.
It used about 400 grams of PLA
I have tried to match the design as much as I could by studying the images from the M3D website
I modeled it using ArchiCAD (I am an Architect and an Architectural Illustrator)
ArchiCAD is in my opinion the worlds best Architectural BIM software which has STL output capabilities from version 17.
I hope you enjoy printing it as much as i enjoyed making it.
I have received information as to the rough sizing the filament that will come with the little machine from the makers!!!
And i will be creating another version to hopefully hold 3 spools at once side by side.
I will have it done this week hopefully.
The sad news is that I will not be getting one now ;-(......
The wife said not to the expenditure and to keep on using the office 3D printer.....So so sad.
Anyways if you have suggestions as to what could be made next i am more than happy to make them.
I gave my test piece at work to a work colleague who I convince to get one so it went to a happy home.
You'll find the first version but also a multi spool version and a multiple spool version in parts.
