That is a neat option, but would cost a bit of filament :)

The big question is: how much filament do you need to waste to "re use an old spool"? It almost feels like the spool it's gonna end on printing these things to re-use itself :P

What a clever point. True

Some of those shelves take a couple hours!

Perhaps if we could find a re-use that doesn't require us printing anything or much less than that... :) Cardboard perhaps?
