What a neat idea. I like it.

I put the entire 7lb cardboard box of filament on the thing and works like a charm.

baseHeight = 6;
level1Height = 7.5;
baseWidth = 156;
level1Width = 94;
centreHole = 34;

These measurements were taken from the Scad file and are all adjustable. Though probably you would only want to adjust the center hole as it is different on different hard drives. It doesn't matter if it's too big though as near enough still works fine.
