I designed a spool holder based on http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:22292
This is a two piece design designed to fit in a small print bed.

Fits on standard Prusa Mendel.

Pieces are 10 mm thick. Designed to hold 5LB spools.

Print Dimensions:
Full Plate V1.1: 185 mm x 117 mm
Base: 135 x 75mm
Extension Arm: 147 mm x 100 mm
Cross beam: 185mm x 15mm

Version History:
V1.0 First print designed, Holds 6mm or 1/4" rod (Pictured and uploaded.)
V1.1 Modified spool bar holder to incorporate 8mm rod. (Uploaded)

This is my first part designed, printed and uploaded. Any comments and suggestions is appreciated.


Print each plate twice.

Interlock the base and extension.

Optional to use spacers (~155mm long Internal space)

Optional, use glue or acetone to permanently join together.

Snap to the top of your Prusa Mendel.

Add a spool of your choosing.

Happy Printing.
