Filament Spool bracket for mini?

Anyone have a spool bracket for the Mini?   Not a huge fan of the roller models.  Takes up deskspace, inconsistent rolls.  I like the one for the MK3S.  I could see where  large spool off to the right of the tower might lead to imbalance?

Thanks!  Those look interesting.  I'll print one this weekend.

I wouldn't hang anything off that axis, especially something that is going to get pulled on, spin, etc. It's nowhere near stiff enough to do this and maintain calibration.

I mount my spools in front of the MINI from the Z-axis tower.  Add a 40 cm length of Bowden tubing to ease the angle.

Here are the STL files.
