@LeeIIIWill Could you share the rod hold fusion 360 file, if that is what you used? I've imported the STL in Fusion, but having trouble to create the design I'd like to try. Actually, there are two designs I wanted to try.

Design 1: Make the rod holder center geometry part 5mm taller. Perhaps we straight walls, then add a slot that would be above the rod, when fully seated, that a small zip tie could slip through. So in assembly the part is mounted on the case, a rod put in, and a zip tie added to hold it in place.

Design 2: Make the rold holder center geometry part 5 mm tall, again with straight walls. Then add 3 to 5mm of geometry above rod when fully seated. In assembly the rod holder is assembled and perhaps the walls of the box can flex just enough that a rod can slip into the hold created.

Yeah, I can send it to you. I'll message you my email and once you email me I'll send back the f3d file.

@LeeIIIWill - I printed up a set of these, I'l have to post a make shortly. The print was non-eventful, nice job on the design. My push fit connector worked right off the build plate. The 8mm rod fits as well, I thought maybe it would be just a bit more snug.

Before I print more of these I'm thinking about modifying the rod holder part. I'd love for it to be 5mm or so longer. I want to be sure the rod stays on and I'd like to be able to secure the rod with a zip tie. The design you have now doesn't really provide a place for a zip tie to bite. I anticipate I may be moving my filament boxes round some and just wanted to secure the rod. My boxes will hold one or two spools of filament.

Great job with the design. This weekend, once my M3 knurl nuts come in, I hope to assemble one box.

Can you make/add a version of the FilDuctInside with holes to hide the screw head? I found this remake but he made the wholes to tight: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3541899

do i need support for the parts? Which settings did u use?

No supports. I believe I printed everything at .2 layer height and 20-30% infill.

No clue how you screwed the pushfits in, but the thread doesn't fit even rudimentarily.
Will try it again with 102% (+) scale..

Fit on my first try printing in PLA without any scaling.
