Inspired by many previous vertical axis spool holder designs.


This is a filament spool holder designed to fit inside a food dehydrator / filament dryer. It can accommodate common 1 kg spools as well as larger spools such as a 3 kg spool.

It is based heavily on established designs but adds adjustable barriers on the sides of the spool to hopefully prevent the filament unwinding off of new spools.

The build as shown in the pictures uses four 608 bearings, commonly known as skateboard or skate bearings. It can also be built entirely out of printed parts if you print your own 608 bearings, such as the one found here:

Materials and methods


Print one of every piece except:
Filament barrier x2
Bearing peg x3

Print the 60 mm spindle and normal barriers if you only plan to use common 1kg spools. If you plan to use anything larger, print the 100 mm spindle and large barriers.

Brims highly recommended for these parts:
Spindle shaft
Bearing peg
Filament barrier (normal and large)
