Now that's what I call a complete kit – I'm going to enjoy this build. (I hope!)

They look so cool when they're printing – like something out of War of the Worlds. Here's hoping the printed output is just a cool looking :-)

Fascinating. I wonder how quickly the child can switch back? Or can he now do both? (I suspect he can.)

Seems it's well worth filming your prints, especially if it's your own design.

The results can be enlightening.

Agreed -- in fact the M3D silver PLA looks pretty fabulous in real life -- so if you're getting PLA at the same time I'd recommend the silver.

I designed this full-sized-spool holder to be printable on small-volume printers (the M3D Micro in my case). It's been well received so far and looks all the better for its curvy, contrasting parts.

So perhaps you would like to print it? The more the merrier!

Enjoy
I decided to celebrate this being made of multiple parts and I suggest you do too – give the parts contrasting colours and make it pop! Sits happily without glue, although you may wish to glue it together. Holds a spool of max 7cm depth, 20cm diameter (or a little more).

Yes it's a very neat, tidy design.

Pleased with the way my spool holder has been received by the M3D Micro community. Getting on for 200 downloads in the last four days. That's a whole lot of filament :-) #3dprinting

"I'd like an ornament please – a golden pineapple" says my better half. So that's Autodesk's pineapple and a session in Meshmixer. Great fun. #3dprinting #m3dmicro
