A simple spool mount which snaps onto the top of a Prusa.


1) Print two of the spool mounts, a bearing* and a filament guide (optional).
2) Snap each spool mount onto the top rails of your Prusa.
3) Use a metal rod to mount the spool between the mounts.
4) Snap the filament guide between the mounts and feed the filament through.

  • Check the measurements first to ensure it will fit your spool.

Very nice, I am going to strech it about half a centimeter to hold 5 lb pla from ultimachine. I have it held up with little spacers from my previous spool holder to make that work for the moment, works great, Thanks!

Cool. These should be beefy enough to hold the 5lb spool, no problem!
