Wind your spool up with a nice gear crank shared by les_kaye on Thingiverse:

Spool winder for filament and other spools with a maximum dimension of 210mm in diameter and 76mm wide. If the spool axle is inset then wider spools may be accommodated. Spools should be a minimum of 30mm wide with an axle hole not smaller than 16mm diameter.

One turn of the handle gives two turns of the spool.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
