Filament spool holder above printer?

Post by hybridprinter » Fri Feb 10, 2017 4:40 am

Does anybody have a suggestion for a filament spool holder which sits above the printer? This would be helpful for holding multiple filament spools and for printing with flexible filaments (no guide tube used).

I once thought about making a simple one out of PVC pipe to do something similar but then someone on here (Jim maybe) mentioned it probably wouldn't be a good idea to put a potential fuel source above the printer (encase the worst ever happened) and that sounded like sound advice so I gave up on that idea and just use Filament Rollers next to the press now.
