Description

I designed this to be stupid simple and easy to print. I printed in about 4 hours, removed supports in about a minute, and assembled/installed in about 10 seconds.

Features:
 * Low friction - be nice to  your extruder
 * Small BOM: two bearings (7mm ID, 19mm OD, 6mm width)
 * Slide-fit assembly
 * Minimal print time and material - 4 hours at 55mm/s
 * Customizable, interchangeable parts - swap spool sizes fast
 * Currently designed to fit a 1Kg spool of Hatchbox 1.75mm PLA

Instructions:
1. Support touching build platform
2. See screenshot for how to orient parts.
3. I printed at 55mm/s with 15% infill

Originally, the design was tight at the printer top mating surface (the "+" shape with  a hole through the center), so I've uploaded a slightly modified design with more clearance and recessed fillets to keep the small tabs from breaking on removal.
