Hi Norphi, these bearings are used to make filament roll-off smooth. You should mount them bweteen the 'spool holder shaft' and the 'spool holder centerring'.

Another issue: it seems that the three bearings on top to guide the filament are not required. On my own system I have actually removed them because as the filament could slip in between two of the bearings, sometimes the filament stuck there instead of being guided. Using Roberts V2 extruder the metal ring already does a good job. I will keep you updated, and if I really leave them off finally update the models with this modification.

It is correct that hinge was missing. I have added it. About de differences between video and design: during assembly I saw that I had to break away some parts to make it work smooth, and also some other details broke directly without use because they where too weak. I have changed the models accordingly, but I did not print the new models for myself. That's the reason of the differences. Models should fit, if not let me know, so that I can modify them for you.

Use this mod if you want to use this nice extruder with flexible material printing (like ninjaflex): https://www.youmagine.com/designs/ultimaker-2-straight-tube-flexible-filament-spool-holder

Added a little video of loading material & startup of a print job.

I just replaced the files with files that already have the correct print orientation.
