Spool failure

Well, today when i was printing the filament spool holder broke off at the arms that hold the rod up. This caused the entire spool assembly to come crashing down on top of me. Luckily no injuries to myself but it looks like the spool will need to be redone with some new support structure, the spool itself is fine likely to the face that it was printed in parts that lock together so when it crashed it came apart rather than breaking the arms off. My supports that i designed to hold up the 1x1 posts held just fine likely due to my over design of them. Ah well, back to the drawing board i guess.
