This is a universal spool holder I made because I didn't see anything that mounted horizontally. I like seeing the colors and remaining amounts. Everything about this spool holder is customizable but I included a default STL that supports several popular filament brands.

Design Features

  • mounts horizontally to show off your beautiful filament colors
  • completely customizable for any spool, with countersinked screw holes
  • included STL fits today's Hatchbox, Inland, and Tianse filament out of the box
  • has enough tolerance to allow you to keep spools wrapped in a bag w/ dessicant
  • very sturdy design yet easy to get spools in and out
  • included STL is designed to fit on a standard 2x4

Usability Ideas

  • mount your filaments staggered on the wall for some flair
  • create a rotating floor stand using a 4x4 with spools mounted on all sides

Supported Spools
If you found this design useful and are using any brands not listed here, please add a comment and list out the brand and/or specs for the spool, thanks!


Update: Added a slim version of the mount because the default seemed like it might be overkill. Basically the "support_multiplier" variable was changed from 8 to 4.5.

Printer Brand:












Print this tall for best results and minimal supports. It MIGHT print ok without supports, I haven't tried yet

Have you used the slim version for very long and are you seeing any kind of warping with full spools?
Any chance I can get a picture of the slim versions you're using and how well they're holding up?

Actually, I haven't used the slim version.

Aesthetically I'm fine with the normal one. There should be no warping, especially at room temperature. I'd be more concerned with the piece snapping, but spools are only 1kg and the triangle support should not compress at all enough to cause any sag. The only time I have had pieces warp was PLA near my heating bed while printing ABS in an enclosure, so we're talking 100C which is 212F.

Thanks for the question!
