Just thought I'd post some picks showing how I've attacked this problem.  Basically I printed a platform to go in the place of the cubes filament cartridge, then I printed a spool holder and glued it to the platform.  On the underside of the platform (not pictured) there's a small cutout which holds a chip I emoved from an almost used cartridge.  When a print starts, I hit the stop button, then pull the platform back a few cm ( and hence spool holder too -as its glued to the platform) to remove the chip from the pins on the bottom of the cartridge bay.  This prevents the chip from being written to while the print is taking place.
