Jan 18, 2019 5:52 pm

as you can guess I want to attach one more to the top for more easy filament swapping.

any help appreciated

I believe that spool holder is not 3D printed. (my printer came with a different holder)

I’ve been using a couple sets of these on my printer: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1832235 and I like them, I’m not sure if there’s enough space up there for 3 spools though.

Hi Patrick,

Why not put a broom handle across some brackets, on the wall, and hang your reels there

Prusa need to make a larger FDM printer before I can get the broom handle to fit (on the printer).

@ joan
because I like to have the printer "portable"
I do quite a lot of multi color prints ( Layer wise) and being able to have four rolls close would be great
thought the dual holder is great by all means anyways

May I suggest you simply print the standard Prusa spool holder mirrored? I did this and it’s worked brilliantly for a year now.

Ignore the MMU2 that’s just hanging out there until I can be bothered to try and get it working.

No need to even open a CAD package.

hehe, yes, its a solution

even if the original can be disassembled, this would do fine
