How to Make: DIY Spool Holder for 3D Printer Filament

Need to stabilize your filament for printing but don’t want to spend the money on a pre-made holder? Print your own Spool Holder on BoXZY by milling mahogany and 3D printing stabilizing caps.

The design consists of two mahogany pieces at either end of the spool for strength and durability. A wooden rod is laid in between the mahogany pieces to hold the weight of the filament. A printed cap is placed on either end of the wooden legs to secure the rod in place.

The main body of the spool holder consists of 2 mahogany pieces, milled on Boxzy. The end caps can be customized to fit whatever size dowel rod you have.
