I designed this solder holder in just a few minutes on http://3dtin.com
You definitely need a heated build platform to print it.
Even with my heated platform, it still had a little warping in the corners.
Suggestions for improvement are welcome!
It takes about 45 minutes to print.
Consider this object to be a proof of concept for printing unedited STL files
exported directly from 3dTin. It's nice to have a 3d editor so easy to use
that a 5 year old can enjoy building with it.
My solder is always unwinding in the toolbox! To fix this, I thread the solder through the hole and wrap the loose end around the spike. I keep the solder from turning by using a large bolt with a a washer. This holds the spool in place.
