Ikea Lack Table Leg Bracket

Has anyone looked at using this not just as a reinforcement but as a method to stack the tables?

any chance to get the f360 file?

Is there a difference in strength in this based on printing orientation? I rotated z-axis 90 degrees to print it so the part touching the top table is on the build surface.

I've attached 2 to my table so far, and it's a little more stable, but not quite as much as I was hoping. Hopefully it will be better once I get the other 2 printed.

One thing I noticed is that only the upper 2 screw holes on the legs hit solid wood. The other 5 holes just hit the thin plywood. If you moved the outer 2 holes on the table side closer to the edge, they might hit the solid frame and make it even more solid.

Have you installed the other two supports? Was wondering how stable is was with all 4 installed.
Thanks,

I've installed all 4, and it doesn't make as much of a difference as I'd like. The table can still wobble a bit.

It's better than without the braces, but probably not any better than just 2 angle brackets on each leg.

What I noticed when I first set up the table was that the legs were slightly different lengths, so if you have the table on a harder surface you will probably see more wobbling. If you try putting the table on a softer surface or even a foam pad of some kind you may see better results.

I am not sure how much the brackets helped, as I did both the brackets and foam pads at once, but i figured it couldn't hurt and adds overall strength as well.
