Use any spool holder with "UM2 connector" with this. Sits in the middle of the UM2(+) side panel. Tested with PLA, easily carries 2kg XL spools. Other materials might bend more. Can be fixed with the case screw on top, but not necessary.
Split in two parts to fit the build plate. Screw the two pieces together, with 2x 10mm M3 screws and 2 M3 nuts. Careful that the screws to not stick out on the back side, they might scratch the UM side panel. Eventually use a file to shorten them 0.5mm.
Note the design is made for 0.4mm nozzle and for tight fit. Printing with 0.8mm nozzle might result in much tighter fit or even not fit of the top hanger or the UM connector.
I am currently using two of them, one on each side panel, to feed my new Bondtech feeders. See photos.
Materials and methods
PLA, 0,4mm nozzle, 0.2mm layers or less, 3-4 perimeters, 30-35% infill, top/bottom 1,5mm, 50-60mm/s print speed.

Gave the top clip 0.2mm more clearance. Now 6.5mm with vs. 6mm thickness of the UM side panel.
- Printed on:
- Ultimaker - The Ultimaker 2
- Works really well! Top clip is a bit tight, but otherwise a great and strong spool holder. :)
UPDATE 4-Feb-17: Added cut-outs for regular M3 nuts in the top part. Increased the length of the overlapping parts of top/bottom to 20mm (from 10mm), increases the stability. And tested to print the top part vertically, works fine and does not affect the sturdiness very much. So I'd say it's now ready for sharing and for others to print and use!
