From the experience gained with Zortrax printers, here is the definitive spool holder stand for FlashForge Finder. It does not occupy space around the printer and makes it very easy to replace the spool without needing to remove and reposition supports. The front, side and top access of the printer remains unchanged. The Perfect visibility of the coil allows us to know immediately what type of filament is mounted and how much filament remains. Possibility of increasing the structural rigidity by means of a rear tie-rod.
The predisposition for the insertion of a microswitch, allows to detect the end of the filament and to integrate external elements for the management of the critical situation (eg. sound alarm https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V366lF4iOiI).
The included basic spool holder can be updated to the "Rotatable" version by simply printing and inserting the additional parts. The rotatable spoolholder reduces the effort of the filament drive motor for greater reliability and durability (https://www.redpah.com/product/4457). See effectiveness (eg. Zortrax M200 version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7WOmbPqmVg).
