I was searching for a single print, vitamin-less spool holder that I could attach to the top of my Pursa-Mendel. Unfortunately, there are so many holders out there I was having trouble finding one that fit my criteria. So here we are. This is probably the same background story for all the spool holders out there.


Print it out and be sure to generate support for the overhangs.

Attach to the top rails on your Mendel with zip-ties (zip-ties optional).

Perform 10 fist pumps of victory (not optional).

I love this file, however it appears to be too big to actually print on my mendel.

What is the diameter of your spool hole?
Does this work well?


could you please upload a scad file? Your design seems to be the best for my Mendel, but I fear the stl file doesn't fit exactly to the spool I bought. So I would need to tweak it just a bit...


I released the STEP file. Hopefully this helps you.

Thanks a lot!
