Filament Spool Holder

I just posted this to Thingiverse.com, I decided to make it as the default spool mount that comes with the original Prusa I3 attaches the spool to the top of the frame and can cause some movement due to the top heaviness whilst the machine vibrates in normal operation.

So moving the spool to a wall mounted arrangement did improve print quality though reducing vibration in the system and flex but also the bearings reduce the force that the extruder has to pull so the flow rate is actually improved resulting in more consistant layers.

A full review of the Original Prusa I3 is coming soon so stay tuned for that!
