It's a spool holder for Prusa mendels. It looks a bit like a tipi so that's why I named it that. Two of these baby's in combination with a piece of 8mm rod will hold spools up to a radius of 10cm. The feet will 'snap' onto the top of your Prusa and the rod should pop in snugly so this is a complete toolless design!
Print two of the holders. Pop in a piece of rod and in between your spool. Snap the feet onto the top of your printer. Enjoy. Like. Share.
.scad file is included, so you can adjust it if you want, for instance, you could make it slightly higher to accomodate bigger spools.
