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.

Storage:
