Replacement spool holder for the Solidoodle.

Updated version can be found here:


I was a bit dissatisfied with the spool holder supplied with the Solidoodle 2. It forced me to position the printer very far from the wall and I felt it could be improved upon.

The holder is designed to accommodate a 1" PVC pipe. The pipe should be approximately 10.5" long. Light sanding on the flats mat be required for proper fitment. 8 small wood screws are also required for assembly

Honestly, it is a bit overbuilt and could be improved upon. Feel free to edit.

This works GREAT. the larger spools drag the frame. I have added a spool insert to resolve this problem. it is under the remixes option.

Great part(s), but it will not work for the larger spools some companies are supplying

Best holder by far!!!!!

This was one of the first things I printed with my printer. Been using it for a few months now. Works great

It works fine on my soildoodle 3 too. I use 3/4 pvc with caps on the end. the caps fit snugly into the printed pieces.

just printed out mine and it works great! I just wood screws #4 x 3/4"

Definitely overbuilt, but it is working great with the Solidoodle filament rolls. I made a spacer for the larger spools but there just isn't quite enough room for them so I have to slide it forward a little. Could use another inch to get the big ones to clear.

Thanks for the work!!

I couldn't get right_upright.stl to load properly so I checked it in netfabb and discovered it had negative volume. I ran it through the cloud version of netfabb and fixed it (here's the repaired file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/qaxa14um16ejfgh/right_upright.stlhttps://www.dropbox.com/s/qaxa... ) so it ought to work now.

Nice design, though. Hopefully my print of it turns out.

wow great idea!!
