    Beautiful. How much longer did you need to make it?
    And what is the diameter of that spool?

    Very little time with 3dbuilder, cut, copy, paste! And is 45mm ..
    It works well with 300 gram reels but with 1 kilo the chip is disconnected and the cube indicates that I have 30 seconds to put the cartridge back!

    1kg is too much. I'm working on a printable filament boat for this.

    I haven't had a disconnect from the larger spool, but I can certainly detect the strain.

    I am suggesting that a full stock spool is about the limit for the lever this creates.
    After that, it needs a support on the outside of the spool. A simple post may do.
    This might be a good use of the two holes in the front of the clamp.

    P3D; For the stock spool, I used 1.3" clearance for holding the spool.
    I can make a quick stretch of the new "Adder" filament despooler.
    Just let me know how thick that spool is.

    The last skunk-works print files you have is a 1kg clamp.
    That is what the locks are for in the clamp.
    It works fine for 1kg but it needs a support under the outer end.
    If you make a post to support the cap, you're done.

    Something between the floor (whatever the cube is sitting on) and the end of the clamp with the protrusion.

    I'm thinking something like a foot with a small post holes and a seat that supports the protrusion.

    Now add some bamboo skewers as posts and you have a lightweight simple support.

    @Tommy
    Thanks a lot for the extruder hub ,, you did a great job
    Do you plan to upload your design as stl ,, I have some ideas for some modification but I dont have time to start from zero , if you can share your design as stl it will be easier to make some modifications

    I'm all for the challenge of reverse engineering a .cube3 files.
    I want that to be successful. The more people learn about the 3DS encoding, the better.

    However, there are fundamental reasons I will not share my core designs. I would ask that be respected.
    Copy all you want... that too is encouraged. I'll even give you the critical numbers as needed.
    I do this for a living, and in my circles, collaboration is always rewarded. Taking over is a recipe for failure.

    Practical reasons for the .cube3 files includes appropriate orientation for certain features.
    No guessing or experimenting on settings I haven't tested yet, or will never test.
    No having to ask 20 questions before even contemplating a query about a specific print... shall I go on?
    Okay, maybe M. can overwrite global settings, but for the most part, if you print the .cube3 file, it will work!

    Saying that, please share what you are thinking and I would consider incorporation the mod for you to test with due credit.

    Hi Tommy, thanks for sharing .cube file,

    last a try it works great, i use extruder with original before, add tube for filament stand,
    i think add small metal (2 pcs, same with original catrigge) will be more strong hold, maybe? or i'm wrong, i try to mod from file that i'm print, cause just .cube i have.

    here pic i use beforeP_20170611_183705-1.jpg
