The most original ideas to take advantage of the empty filament spools
What to do with the spools once finished?
If you are a hardcore 3Dprinter, you will have reached a point where the empty reels of material will already be eating you space. Before you throw them away and trust that they will be recycled correctly, we will propose you the best ideas of the network to take advantage of them.
One of the best ways to use empty reels is like storage boxes. Just print a couple of pieces and you're done, you'll have the system ready.
We leave you with two alternatives in thingiverse:
If you are a painting buff probably what you will have to store are paintings and you will need to have them handy. Without printing anything, look how this user managed to store his painting.
We are already in the autumn, soon the Christmas will arrive and we will find the hell of all the years when unrolling the lights for the tree. This user of Thingiverse had the same problem and solved it in a very imaginative way using an empty coil.
If you want all your visitors to realize that you are passionate about 3D printing you better have in your living room a table made from empty spools
Turn coils into fun toys using only two printed pieces.
Using reels as wheels for a car does not seem like the best idea, but it sure will ensure a fun ride.
Print your own clock:
If you spend many hours in front of the printer, you probably lose track of time. So why not create your own spool clock.
These are our recycling proposals for empty filament coils What are yours? You can put them in the comments section. See you printing.
