A modified version of the YAFSH (Yet Another Filament Spool Holder) (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:12974) to fit my Prusa Mendel.

With my print, I didn't even have to tie the clamps (feet) of the holder to the rods. The snug fit seems to hold it pretty well in place.

Also took out a little plastic from the center of the spool hub area to save on some material.

This was a rough mod so please excuse the sloppiness, I didn't have time to make the openscad code all nice and neat, but still wanted to share it.

Also threw in that filament guide I have in the picture, in which you will have to drill a hole because I didn't add it in the files.

Slic3r is giving me errors on "Bottom Mendel Mirror" so I did 2x "Bottom Mendel" figuring that it the feet pointing the wrong direction shouldn't be a big deal...

 I'm getting the same error, has the two "Bottom Mendel Mirror"s worked out well?

I still need to finish fitting the dovetails together (haven't had much time lately), as they won't fit without some filing/sanding.  But so far, it looks like it will work. 

How many and of which ones do I need to print? (I have a Makergear Prusa.)

You should print:

2x "Top Mod1"

1x "Bottom Mendel"

1x "Bottom Mendel Mirror"

and that's it.
