Would like to request permission to modify file please.

Thanks for sharing, what about changing the legs/body connectors for ones like the hands/arms like this, will it work?

Is the design file available somehow - so one can make minor modifications there instead of struggeling withg import/modification/export of STL files?
I am asking, as I'd like to add a couple of "countersunk" figures to mount reflective tape, so it looks like the minifig wears a security/visibility-vest ;-)

just stumbled upon this, looks dope, unfortunately the wife wont let me put it in the bathroom. so that being said, will it work to hold a roll of filament instead?

You should finish caulking the tile.

I have tried the body scaled for uk toilet rolls twice both times the arms fail at the last bend how have you guys printed this with support or not

What size suction cups (what is the largest diameter - the part, that attached to the wall) ? - Something like http://www.ebay.com/itm/311566424293 - or larger ?
Is it possible to request the source files, in case any adjustments are needed - as I think a sort of snap-lock to attach the legs to the body would be nice.. ?

My bar ended up short.

Anyone else had that problem?

I had that problem as needed to rotate the hands 180 degrees from the intended position to be able to fit the roll in. Just published a remix that overcomes it with a longer roll holder - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2559281

Lego Man Toilet Paper Holder (Longer Roll Holder)
by tvi675

Hi this is a really great design but it didn't work out for myself.

what settings do you print it at I used honeycomb fill 20% and 0.2mm top / bottom layers.
what happened is there was big holes in the top layer and the bottom layer didn't print at all. I am using 1.75mm PLA

I assume 0.2mm layer thinkness - how many top/bottom layers ? What about fan settings? Just too bad, that it will take a lot of printing and filament to get to the top layers ....

OP must have some small toilet paper rolls because i did it and the rolls don't fit :(

How big are your rolls? I have printed it, and it has the same size all my previous toilet roll holder and i have not had an issue with the old one in the last 20 years.

Hi all,

I really like this model but I am experiencing trouble printing the body as the first part.
I have made 4 attempts without success.

This is the longest print I am trying to make, and I am new to 3D printing. I am using PLA with 205°C heating and made attempts with different bed temperatures from 50°C to 70°C

I am using a RAISE N1 and I have two issues :

  • first issue, some corners of the model start to rise from the bed : the elbow and the neck for instance
  • second issue : after a while, the model is no longer stuck to the bed and start moving with the nozzle.

I am using spray to foster adhesion but it does not work obviously.

Thank you in advance for you help



Depending on the PLA you are using you can lower the temperature to 195°C. Use the 70°C you mentioned for the bed temperature. You also could reduce the infill to avoid "warping". The lego man don't needs to be super massive. Spray like hair spray only works on pure glass or aluminium plattforms. If you have some tape or foil on your bed the spray reduce the friction. If you use foil or tape try to use "hard" sandpaper to increase the friction. Good luck!

Great job on this, I'm just printing it now and will post pics when done. Is it possible for you to add some girls hair as a option please?

Main parts are too big.

Could I print everything at 79% without any issues?


What can prevent the scale model? You can reduce the model even 10 times =) Another question is whether you will be able to unwind a roll. Or it is necessary to spend first part without the support, and then use the bracket =)


first. i love it :-D

my roll dosent fit..
the roll is 10cm
the space only 9,4cm

is your roll smaller or must i scale it up?


From your comment I assume, that you have printed this "thing". How do you assemble the different parts? Glue?

hi. yes i have printed it. glue. yes and no. i printed it in ABS and used acetone :-)
but it is a kind of glueing. or? ;-)

If you need, I can posting the source code in the format of .step or .iges. You can just edit in any cad programm.

That would be really great!

Comments deleted.

This may be why the previous version had a curved chest. You could carve a space out, make the arms longer, or resize the whole.

Another thought – you could make the center section of the spindle more narrow. That would allow a larger roll, but it might hang a little lower.

i just took the roll of paper use, and painted figurine for him. the curvature of the chest on the previous model, i don't like it, so i scaled model minifig to this size. it's big, but very spectacular holder - all the guests visiting rest room in delight! =))

What a great remix, Excellent idea!

Awesome! My kids love it!
