Spools from Plastic2Print

After receiving my PLA-spools from Plastic2Print there is one good and one bad thing about them: The good thing is, that the plastic is of a very nice quality and my Replicator 2 can print with it very nicely. The bad thing: They dont fit on the spool holder of the Replicator 2.

Makerbot Replicator 2 - PLA-Spool

Makerbot Replicator 2 - Spool holder


But there is a solution for that: Just print your own spool holder!
The first part was the most difficult one: I had to get some plastic from the new to the original spool. Get a hammer, put the grip into the spool and hold it with your legs. Now use some force to keep the PLA filament straight (this is important, otherwise it will tangle and will not be useable anymore!)

The in Hash Animation:Master v17 modelled and as a STL exported holder could be importated to Makerware and now I can print again without a problem with the new holder.


You are using Google Chrome...

Do you know that Google is known for not respecting your privacy and using your data without really asking for it?
For instance Chrome will scan your computer and the files you saved on it, transfers data about your internet surfing to Google and creates a extensive profile about you as a Chrome user while combining those data with all other services of Google.

Additional information can be found here: Why you should not use Google products if you can avoid it.

Because of that I highly recommend using another browser:


If my website sucks, you do not need to visit it.
Have a nice day and think about how much you have payed to visit it? Nothing...
How many ads do you see at it? None.

How much money do I earn from it? Nothing.
Does it cost me something to host it? Hell yeah.

I do not see why I should provide it to you to be insulted?
