    does anyone know if there is a filament roll holder that can hold the large rolls on top of the printer? these
    rolls seem pretty heavy and I don't want to have it break on me during a print. thankx

    Amazon has Hatchbox holders that can be wall mounted or desktop. For $2 more you can get the extra wide for two spools or one very large spool. :)

    I use the hatchboxwall mount as well, as far as his question on the printable spool we would need to know what's size spools he is trying to print with.

    The hatchbox wall mount won't hold 2kg spools :p

    The size or the 2 kg spools are bigger than the space between my wall and the rack:) not so much what it can hold weight wise but physically :p

    I would not trust something printed to hold more than a KG above a glass plate, but I've seen too many shattered beds.
