Filament spool holders for the MINI+

I have just ordered a MINI+ - very excited for this to come!

In the meanwhile, I can see that it does not come with a spool holder like my MK3S+, and there is not a frame on which to mount one. 

However, there is a really nice spool holder in one of the site pictures of the MINI+ here:

I looked on the printable parts section for the MINI+ ( https://www.prusaprinters.org/prints/57214-mini-printable-parts/files), but no spool holder to be seen.

Does anyone know where I can get the STL for this part ? Failing that, does anyone have recommendations for good spool holders that I can print ?

Thank you!

It comes with the depicted standalone spool holder, so you'll be good to go when you receive your printer. Have fun with your new MINI! 🙂

Thank you! I am glad to hear that. As a bonus question - I have an MMU2+, and this holder looks like it would be more reliable for small spools than the ones that came with that unit. Do they have STLs for it if I want to print more ?

They have the files for the plastic parts of the spool holder. The holder is adjustable for width. Only thing you can't print are the bearings and screws. I'm using mine with a standard 1kg Prusament spool. Have room to go a little wider if need be.
