You should make a square version so it cant rotate!

I printed a bunch of these and used them to rivet together some cardboard; super handy!

I printed this rivet set today. It came out looking quite nice, but I used ABS plastic and the little knobs snapped right off when I pressed the two pieces together. I suspect a different type of building material would be best to use!

Hi, I haven't experienced this problem, it could be the ABS as I only use PLA.
I would try and print with PLA and see if you can get it working.
I will be uploading an improved version soon as this one was a test so needs some improvements etc.
Thanks for downloading,
ReneeCel :)

The rivet head is much larger than the rivet.

Due to the large take up of the rivet ,one of my own creations, I will be making an improved longer version soon.
Thanks for your comments,
ReneeCel :)
