I designed this solder holder in just a few minutes on http://3dtin.com
You definitely need a heated build platform to print it.
Even with my heated platform, it still had a little warping in the corners.

Suggestions for improvement are welcome!
It takes about 45 minutes to print.

Consider this object to be a proof of concept for printing unedited STL files
exported directly from 3dTin. It's nice to have a 3d editor so easy to use
that a 5 year old can enjoy building with it.


My solder is always unwinding in the toolbox! To fix this, I thread the solder through the hole and wrap the loose end around the spike. I keep the solder from turning by using a large bolt with a a washer. This holds the spool in place.

Can you post a photo of this with the solder in place? I don't really understand what all the fiddlybits are on the far side. Thanks! Cool idea, by the way!

Sure thing, I attached a photo above. I was really pleased that my part was exactly right on the first print. I'm going to print more of these for my other spools of solder. The fiddly bits are so you can wind up the solder. I want to keep it from getting loose and unspooling in my toolbox.
