A fully working loom, no need for any other materials ready to use from the printer, no need for metal screw( you can use them if you want)
You just need to print and assemble the parts, there a lots of tutorial videos of how to use it
I recommend 50% to 100% infill to support the thread tension, if your printer is too small you can rescale up to 75% and it will work with no problem, no supports needed.
after print is recommended to sand the parts so the thread will flow more easily.
you can make scarfs, tapestry, clothes, kumihimo, and anything you want there is no limit, you can use up to 44 threads in the loom wide, length haves no limit.
It needs some improvement inthe screws and the locking bars, please fell free to remix and improve the loom.
Update: I recommend to use metal screws, I uploaded a photo as an example, just find the correct size of screws cut the screw heads and use epoxy or superglue, they will work like magic
recommended 100% infill, raft 8 mm
