With summer having quickly retreated to give way for a cool fall, we can’t imagine we’re the only ones who are starting to go into hibernation mode. Fortunately, we’ve got some great DIY 3D printing projects that will keep us busy over the the chilly autumn season. From a handy 3D printed spool for 3D pen users, to an adorable 3D printed JOY controller, to a voice-controlled lamp, there’s something for just about every maker on this list.

Edmonton-based Thingiverse maker BManx2000 has created a novel little device that is sure to pique the attention of any makers whose portfolio of 3D printing technologies also includes a 3D pen.

Device - Question - Spool - System - End

The device in question is a “mini spool system” which is designed to be attached to the end of a 3D pen and which can store small lengths of 1.75 mm filament. The ingenious mini spool seems like the perfect alternative to having filament cumbersomely sticking out the back of your 3D pen.

The 3D pen spool is made up of a handful of parts which can be 3D printed without supports, with a resolution of 0.3 mm, and a 20% infill. Once the individual parts are 3D printed, BManx2000 suggests assembling the pieces and welding them together using your 3D pen.

Part - Device - Spool - Holder - Pen

It should be noted that the clip part of the device, which secures the spool holder to the 3D pen, was designed to fit the maker’s generic 3D pen model. “I invite owners of other 3D pens to design their own spool holders and post them here as remixes,” says BManx2000.

If you are a 3D pen artist or simply use the handheld tool to repair or connect 3D prints, you can find the files for the spool holder here.
