A filament guide which can adapt itself to different diameters and widths of the spool.

Improvements to the first version:
- The version 2 (the white parts on the pictures) can now catch and release the filament without pulling it back.
- Thanks to a snap connection between the holder and the sphere no glue is required anymore.

I have slightly redesigned the base part. Now it fits better on the screw holes on the printer and the sphere mount is a bit stronger.

Materials and methods

- printed from PLA
- you need 1x rod 2x12 (or 2x10)mm
- you need 2x M3x20 countersunk
- insert the sphere into the base before you snap together the holder and the sphere!

@leadboss - The sphere and the holder are the updated ones (see the 04 index), the pully and the base are the same as in the first version.
