Every attempt to print the clickable ends (MDG-06) have failed for me. I've printed in both ABS and PLA with very low print speeds (50 mm/s). It seems like once it gets to the top of the small "support" it starts to fall over and doesn't adhere to the top very well.
Even the ones I could salvage as "good enough" i tried clipping it to MDG-05 and the top just snaps off.
What settings / layer heights are you using to print these clips?

Tolles Design!
Ich habe gemerkt, dass man die Verbindungsstücke durch Zahnstocher ersetzen kann.

Also muss erstmal sagen, ich feier dieses design hart. Habe schonmal versucht selber sowas zu machen bin aber leider sehr gescheitert und ich werde diese sicken domes auf jeden Fall drucken!!!

From where do you buy the plastic film?

You will find such a transparent foil mostly in the local garden centre or in a home building shop.

Greetings saxbav

I dont know. This makes no sense to me.

Is it possible to build this as big as you like it? Like just add more connectors? Or is it a fixed size?

Also i was thinking.. making these to fit like f.ex those spears you use when you make spears to have on the grill with meat and vegetables.. <3

Sure, you can enlarge the whole thing.

Look at my bigger Greenhouse-Dome (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1482704). There you can use woodsticks and he already has corresponding connecting pieces. But as you can read in the description, I have had bad experiences with woodsticks. These mold very quickly.

The idea is great, may I suggest another idea for this, rather then using printed rib things why not make your part so they can be connected with filament , a six sided hub like you have but, with 1.75 mm holes. just an idea.

One problem is that the filament is not straight as it comes from the spindle. Sharpening is also a lot of work (I have noticed this at the other greenhouse-dom with woodsticks, so I created a printable version). The sticks can be printed directly onto the print bed. This goes very quickly.

But you can use wood or other rods, if you find something suitable.

yes I seen you made one with tooth picks, in any case I do like the idea of a small pot green house, im about to start a maple bonsai and I thought something like this might help with the first years growth.

The idea I had also already. But for me is the current version ok.

I use 2.85 mm Fillament. Sharpened, this could eventually work without modification.
