bro, I made one for my mibox 3, and when was cutting the supports, the part that grabs the box broke, the other too, but I was able to weld a part with a soldering iron, but it was weak I see there a weak point, any additional recommendation in parameters to print stronger?

I am a newbie in 3d design, I tried to reinforce the weaker parts in tinkercad but I made it ugly

It happened to me too the first time I printed this, I just printed another one and removed the supports very carefully, once it is mounted and the MiBox is inside there is almost no pressure on the thin parts - I could make the flaps thicker but I want this bracket to be almost invisible and as you discovered making it thicker makes it ugly.

The bracket the picture above is mounted on the side of my bedroom wardrobe (that's why the background is wood grain) for about a year and shows no signs of breaking

So, could I put it upside down and have all the ports free?

Possibly, I didn't try it myself, it should fit, you should tie the cables to something above the MiBox, the weight of the cables connected from above but pulling downward will put pressure in the wrong direction on both the connectors themselves and on the flaps holding the MiBox in place.

If you try it and it works I'll appreciate it if you click "post a make" and upload a photo
