Looks like a nice design. But what are the spec's for the bolts, etc.? They kinda look like quarter inch bolts and perhaps one inch pipe? Whatever they are, you might want to add that info to the description. I guess I can print and measure the parts...

Hi. The parts were designed with a diameter of 5.5 mm. You can drill out the holes or use smaller bolts. That's the reason why I didn't mention the screw dimensions in the description, because it depends on which bolts are better available in your location.
For the pipe I sadly don't know the diameter, but the part accepts rods up to 18 mm.

kind regards,

Nice design. Im currently building a couple of this boxes.

I have a question: Did you rotate the passages on purpouse so they face down?

Hi! I have three passages on the top and three on the bottom. I found out that, since the box is on top of my printer, the filament should not bend in too many directions. Long story short, the filament feeded through the top passages follows its "natural" curve so it won't snap or something.

kind regards,

I've made new pipe holder, for another plastic pipe:
