Hi, anybody found a good cover to cover up the i3 mk3s with the T-shaped spool holder?

No recommendations, but filament shouldn't be left "stored" outside a dry container (ziplok bag with desiccant or similar) so removing the spool holder should not be a concern.  But you might mean ENCLOSURE rather than a dust type cover.

Yes, for the time being, I store the filament in the ziplok bag that came with the filament. Will work on storage later.

I mean dust type cover. I don't want to remove the T-shaped spool holder from the printer because it was difficult to put it on and it looks like if I do something about it again, it will break.

The nylon does come off does come off ... and you might consider this (or many other user options out there):

Are you looking for a dust cover to put on the printer when not using it (like grill cover), or an enclosure that the printer sits inside while you print with it?

I was going to first mention using a trash bag, but on second thought that might be bad for static. A cotton pillow case might work in a pinch (but also might not be large enough around...). Find someone with a sewing machine and provide them with the cotton (for non static) fabric?

This link takes you to a great idea...

For transparency, I didn’t actually print the support structure, although I’m sure it would work fine. I did, however, purchase the plastic/nylon cover spelled out on the page. Got it from Amazon. I just slip it over the whole printer when I’m done. Fits perfectly, is anti-static, and worked fine when I had the stock spool bracket on the crossmember, and now works just fine with my MMU2S setup on the crossmember.

My printer lives in my garage/shop and the cover does a phenomenal job of keeping it clean. 10/10 will continue to use!
