I was frustrated by how the Ultimaker 3 stock filament guide works, especially with wider spools which jam up.
This front mounting filament guide is remixed off the original Ultimaker part: https://www.youmagine.com/designs/ultimaker-3-spool-holder
It simply clips on the front of the spool holder - the cable cover can not be used with this guide. The white insert from the original guide can be put in this one if wanted.
Materials and methods
Printing with 3 shells will make most of the areas pretty solid. I set infill around 40%. Supports are needed but set the overhang angle high (ie: 85 degrees) which will avoid supports for the openings at the very top.
