I printed this last night and it looks awesome but in the picture there is something holding the tip up is that something I can print separate

It's a piece of bent copper sheet, so that you don't put the tip (which I thought would get hot when I made the model) on the plastic itself. You can either find a bit of sheet copper and use the drawing in the instructions to get the same thing as in the pictures, or if you can't find copper, you could just quickly draw up and print a small plastic part that would fit in its place :)
As I found out later, the base of the soldering tip stays cold enough that you can touch it, so having it touch the plastic should be fine.

I made one and like it but the new solder rolls I can find will not fit the spool is too wide. What solder are you running?

Thanks for printing the design, I'm sorry to hear that your solder doesn't fit :|
I put links to all the parts into the summary, if you want to check those out. It should have occurred to me to do that when I posted this.

If you'd want to reprint this for a different solder spool size, I can adjust the dimensions and post a new mesh file. I'll also upload the Fusion 360 file when I get home from work, so that you (or anyone else) can tweak the model.
