Hi there man, I am trying to make a modification to tapered version of this wonderful spool holder but it is hard for me as I am no 3D artist.

In sketchup I can pull some of the faces but because the edges of the model are rounded I end up with a weird thing, which software did you use to make this?

What I want to do is add at the back side something like this:
To add a 5/16 threaded rod for more grip because I have a Z-Tall printrbot.

And I want to add to left/right side of the tapered thing,respectively, something like this (only the white print):
But for a 5mm threaded rod, so it stops the wobble from the Z axis when going up and down and to make the threaded rod straight to the smooth rod.

I am no 3D artist either :) I used AutoDesk Inventor to make this. Is there a particular file format you're looking for?

Made a remix from yours and others:


But I may not give it a go, I think that I will use something else.

I am using/learning SketchUp right now.
