I love this thing, but I can't seem to make one that doesn't break during assembly. I have used PLA and HIPS, and every time I broke the flanges as they "snapped" into the holes. I have tried filing/sanding the holes to make it easier for the flanges to fit and slide, and it got better. I only broke one of the flanges for each hole. Is there a trick to this thing? Does it only really work with ABS?
