After asking the original maker to shorten a bit his universal spool holder (since it's too long to fit the stock Anet spool holder), and never receiving a reply, I manage to do it by myself.

So I used freecad to fix the model, convert to .step and then shorten about 10 mm with 123d Design. I also did some improvement at the bottom, to avoid the need of supports.

Original bolt length: 126.4 mm
Modified bolt length: 116.4 mm

You can see in pictures, the purple one is the original bolt, while the yellow is my modified version.
