Homemade spool rack for Ultimachine Spools. You supply the 1" dowel and you can print the rest of the parts, 4 unique parts total. This rack allows you to store multiple spools with the ability to grab whichever one you need without removing other spools.

This is my 2nd iteration with tighter fits on all of the parts. Feedback is appreciated for Rev 3 (if needed).


I built the feet on their side with supports. Be sure to build at medium or better quality, with 3 shells and 20% infill or greater. The feet carry a lot of weight and my first build at low quality de-laminated and broke too easily. Brackets can be build on the flat side with no supports. Same notes on infill and shells, as these need to be strong. Build the Panel vertically with supports to fill the 4 holes. Cut your 1" diameter dowel to whatever length you need for your desired spool capacity. It took me about a week of building here and there to gather all of the parts to build a 5 spool rack.

I am curious if there would be a way to mount this on the wall as my desk space is few and far between, but I have a ton of blank wall space above the printer.

How tightly does this hold the spools? Could the addition of some teflon tape, "mouse feet", for reduced friction allow this to be used to hold a spool during a print?

Did you use a wooden dowel or something to insert into the feet and connect the panels?

could you please list the dimensions of the parts, especially the feet. I cannot get a foot on the bed of my ultimaker 2

Will this comfortably hold spools from other manufacturers as well, 'cause I'm mainly using Makerbot spools.

has anyone tried to print? first layer prints good but second layer doesn't work. arms print good also

With which part are you having the print issue?
