I had a blast building a 3D printer, but since its completion it has mostly sat idle. Turns out the fun for me is in the build process, and actually using it for anything isn’t quite so entertaining. I was very happy, then, to find a file on Thingiverse that I actually wanted to print! This filament spool is just fantastic. It’s conservative with the build volume it requires, customizable for a variety of spool widths, nice looking, and extremely durable. Plus, it’s entirely a 3D object, which is always awesome to show off.

Here it is being incredibly useful:
