Nice, the rough finish will aid in cutting into the gypsum.

Thanks for this. Designs like yours keep pushing 3D printing from cool hobby to actually useful!

Are you printing these in ABS or PLA? I wonder if PLA would be too brittle...

For what I wanted them for I wanted a strong rigid anchor with low flex, so I went with PLA. I observed no issues with brittleness at the size scales I used. It's possible ABS might be advantageous for a narrower anchor, but I haven't tried it.

Made a set of six in ABS and I am sure that they will work great.
