Hello, I also want you not to have straight angles between the part that has the spout and the part that sells up that has the hole, that is, that has a concave radius, another modification that will hurt the shoulder. enough so that it can rotate once screwed with the other shape than U, that structurally would make it more robust. Thanks for your diceño, same.

Does this design have locking notches on both sides to keep it from moving

I printed out the revised "end pieces" and the double end still breaks with hardly any pressure. I followed the specs here. I don't think these are going to put up with a lot weight or strain with the others in the set.

I'm sorry to hear that. The pieces I have for a filament holder have been in use for a couple of years with no problem.

What printer settings did you use?

would it be possible to have a few of them in separate files? thinking of using this for a project and I don't think I would need certain pieces

You can use Repetier Host to break the file into separate parts and save individual parts as STLs. That's what I usually do in cases like this. Very handy.

I am curious how much weight this might be able support. I always assume that 3D printed stuff may pull apart at any time, so I haven't tried it in any load-bearing application.

I'm curious, too. I made a filament spool holder for my printer, and it's working well, but I modified the instructions to address your concerns. There are a lot of variables in 3D printing, which is why this thing was posted in Construction TOYS.
Thanks for the feedback!
