XL 3D Printer Instructions:

Remove the existing spool holder (save for different types of spools).  After the filament minder is printed, remove it from the plate and insert 1 M8 x 30mm bolt through the central hole in the part.  The filament minder is designed with a hex opening to hold the M8 bolt captive (only one wrench needed to tighten).  Once the M8 bolt is inserted through the part, simply attach the assembly to the printer through the existing spool holder opening.  Finally, fasten an M8 nut and washer to the M8 bolt and tighten accordingly.

V.4, 5, 5.5 Instructions:

Remove the existing spool holder (save for different types of spools).  After the filament minder is printed (in two parts as shown above), remove the parts from the plate and drill out the hole in the body (corresponding to the hole in the arm) with a 1/8″ drill bit.  Now run 1 M3 x 10mm bolt and 1 M3 washer through the arm and then into the corresponding hole in the body.  Secure with 1 M3 nut on the body corresponding to the M3 hex opening.  With the body and arm fastened together, insert 1 M8 x 30mm bolt through the central hole in the assembly.  The filament minder is designed with a hex opening to hold the M8 bolt captive (only one wrench needed to tighten).  Once the M8 bolt is inserted through the part, simply attach the assembly to the printer through the existing spool holder opening.  Finally, fasten an M8 nut and washer to the M8 bolt and tighten accordingly.
