I think this could be improved a little bit by making the slot that holds the cylinder a little deeper to keep it from falling out if it get knocked around a little bit. Ideally, there'd be a catch of some sort that completely retains the cylinder even if the dispenser is upside down. (But that, admittedly, might be a little overkill for a desktop dispenser.)

I printed one of these at .1mm, with 10% infill. Then I paused the printer a few times to infill with some kitty litter to add weight. Lastly, I plan to dig up a thin sheet of rubber, cut it to form, and glue it to the bottom to keep it from slipping around. I'm quite happy with the results and plan to use it as my home office tape dispenser. My only regret is that I printed this overnight and so I didn't get as much kitty litter as I'd like in there!
