How are yours working out? I used PLA, and a day in the sun and they warped and broke...what filament did you use? Thinking maybe printing larger, say 200% will make them less prone to breaking direct sunlight since PLA is all I have.

My first few ended up about the same as yours, so I made a thicker version and printed it in white again, the white color reduces how hot it gets. I will be posting the thicker version here soon, just keep in mind that these are not meant to support tons of weight. I hope It helps!

yeah, I hear ya on the weight...although I have some very heavy stuff mounted in my garage with PLA out of sunlight...so maybe painting with some sort of UV blocking properties might help out. I'll try the thicker version and scale it up some also...thanks.

No Problem, That UV Blocking spray is a good idea, I Hope it works better this time!
