This is a horizontal filament spool roller derived from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:31678. I added a adapter for filament-spools coming from Sainsmart with a spool-hole-diameter of 48mm.
I prefer this horizontal position because the ABS from Sainsmart has a bad winding and the boundary is too short which is leading to cable spaghetti in vertical position.
I like this roller very much because it is working very good and I can use the very cheap ABS filament without spaghetti 🙂
Thank you Jack_N!!!
You need the following:
3x Screws M5 X 20
3x Nuts M5
3x Bearings 625 (5 X 16 X 5)
1x Bearing 608
Assemble the 625 bearings to the bearing plate with the screws and nuts. Place the 608 bearing in the middle of the bearing plate.
Here is a video of the roller in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQ3xlQT2xA0
