K8400 spool holder incllined slot

This is an improvement over the original spool holder. What I did not like from the original was: a)fixed permanently to the frame b) extruder/spool position does not always allow a correct unwinding of the filament. I decided to design this support to solve these issues. .

Description

This is an improvement over the original spool holder.

What I did not like from the original was:

a)fixed permanently to the frame

b) extruder/spool position does not always allow a correct unwinding of the filament.


I decided to design this support to solve these issues.


I took inspiration from other spool holders, but it is a new design done in freecad. The original screws are at an offset for a simplified assembly.

Printed and tested. Never had any filament lock since.
