These are replacement stakes for Outdoor Solar Mini Path Lights. My father has had a few of the stakes brake on him, so I thought it would be a great use of my new printer.
I made two designs for the stake, first is the actual design that I reverse engineered and second is one that I modified. I printed the modified design and tried two different layouts for printing (see pictures). I created the parts from scratch in AutoDesk Inventor, so I posted the .ipt files along with the .stl files for both versions.

Note: Another stake that is similar but for a different purpose is by MNinventor - http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:15286
I printed the parts on an Afinia UP! PP3DP printer. I have only had it for a couple weeks, so I am not the best at setup yet. I tried printing it in two different orientations; still not sure which one is the best. I still need to give the parts to my Dad for testing. I used the normal speed setting and only slightly changed the default settings.
