Anet A8 Top Filament Mount


Summary I created this top filament mount to because I noticed filament shavings on top of my extruder. I took this as a symptom that the motors were pulling on my spool and I was getting an inconsistent flow of filament into the extruder. To fix this, I mounted the filament where the outside of my roll was right over my extruder. This will allow the roll to naturally unwind and put minimal force on the x-motor. This project is a work in progress. Eventually, I plan on expanding the mount across the entire printer. I'll update the files and photos as I make changes.
