A simple spool holder using some 5/16" threaded rod, 5/16" bolts, and two 608 bearings.


This is another simple spool holder. Simply print two of both stl's. A 608 bearing will fit in the spool ends allowing your spool of filament to spin freely.

-- I used 8" (200mm) of threaded rod. This covers all 1 Kg spools that I have owned.
-- One end I used two locking nuts to hold the spool holder pertinently in place. The other side I used one regular nut and a wing nut to allow for easy changing of the spool.
-- The spool center i have designed fits all spools that i have used thus far.
-- I also attached two adhesive grips (for furniture) on the bottom of each spool holder. This keeps it from sliding all over the place :).

I printed this and it works very nicely. thanks. one suggestion: put a notch in the middle on the inside on the bottom rail, about 7mm wide all the way through. then include a rod 7mm wide and as high as the bottom rail. the idea is to snap it in place and provide a brace across the two stands but that can be taken apart to change reels.

What's the distance from center to table? How big a print area is needed for this? Thanks.

sorry i just realized there was a question. Im not positive but i believe the height from center to bottom is around 5 or 6 inches. I printed these on a printer with an 8x8 inch print bed. I'm not sure if it will fit on a 6x6 bed but your software should be able to tell you.
