    Ok, started printing this beast and stopped it for two reasons........ We have more rain coming tonight and the least bit of lightning will kick my printer off....Als,. after seeing this thing on my printer...it's huge...there's no way I would ever have that much wire to wind on it. We need to think of a better realistic size. I sticking with 18" dia but the pocket size....will be way big. I already had to cut in 6 pieces instead of 4 to get it to fit my little CR10. I'm hoping to get the size down where I can fit two at once on here.

      Ok, I calculated the volume of wire on my 2.5 lb spool of 20 awg wire. Then I calculated the volume of 18" dia spool with a 1" x 1" pocket and found it has almost 4 times the volume of my wire It allows room for winding slop and it also allows me to print two at a time if I so choose. I'm going to print one and see how long it takes with a density of 10% with triangle fill.
