I'm using these pins in a huge project for a contest in my fablab, and I have a question for people who tried it:
In the default dimensions, how much load can a pin hold? I am actually 5500km far away from my printer, and won't be able to test myself :(
For information, I'm making an "engineering lampshade", with gears and lot of mechanical stuff, and the lampshade itself (~~500g according to solidworks) is verticaly holded by 6 pins!
Do you think they can hold it?
