    Re Cube 3 Filament winder Spool Winder Modification to fit CubePro

    Hi Tommy As you can see internal spool different but guess winder works the same in principal.

    I was concerned re the spool winder clamp wouldn't fit this smooth cubePro spool in order to wind on the replacement filament

    When finished next print I will look to do the hack on my machine.

    Firmware CubePro 2 .00 so assume this will work as well on this as the Cube 3?

    Any suggestions much appreciated.IMAG1227.jpgcartridge dimensions.jpgCartridge CubePro.jpg

    Hey @chaman

    I did print all the pieces but Im still wondering how to sort the tubes togheter....

    I mean, i do have the main structure setup, but the round tube does not fit anywhere inside any of the holes in it ??? :???



    EDIT: Nevermind, just realized I need to print some pieces twice lol


    Thanks!

    All cool! The only issue is somehow the rounded+cubic spool holder piece is too tight on the holes, but I sanded it a bit and it's ok now

    Ok I respooled a couple spools....

    First one became "too lose" and took less filament because of missing tension.

    Second one, i did use my finger and sometimes my hand to add either / both some tension or "opposing force" to the easyness of the giver spool to unwind, getting the reciever spool to be more tensioned and it took more filament than the first one, plus at the same time it does not do "weird" things like trying to unwind leaving "spaces" over the air...

    So perhaps adding a bearing driven wheel somewhere on the path of the filament guide and between both spools could add some tension to the "system" and get better spools for our printers?

    Needless to say, I'm NULL at engineering, and the most desireable thing would be to have a "tilting" filament guide too, to allow filling all the spool gaps as soon as you move your lever

    PLUS: Leave enough space on the filament guide to feed it with a bit of PFTE tube to prevent filament "grinding" while sliding PLA vs PLA....

    The last "small spool" of Printrbot filament I rewound I first rewound onto a stock PrintRBot spool...
    That moves the outside coils to the inside...
    And immediately following I rewound it onto the stock spool.
    Now the inside coils are still inside.
    This wound nice and tight without undue filament stress.

    For larger filament coils, I do leave it a relaxed wind. It keeps filament from cracking if it has the potential to do so.

    Define "small Printrbot" vs "stock Printrbot"
