When I printed the first bracket, I noticed a 1-2mm shift right at the top of the screw holes (on the curved side). I thought maybe it was just a one time glitch. When I printed the second bracket, I got the exact same result at the same point in the build. The only change I made to the build was I printed the bracket at 90% of the original size, but I can't see why that would cause a shift. See attached photo.

Has anyone else experienced a similar issue printing this bracket?


not a clue, looks like a printer issue? hard to tell, image is dark ? what slicer? settings? printer?

looks good! is it pretty strong?

yes and no. It's actually stronger that I originally expected, but, I wouldn't put anything heavy on the shelf. the mounting holes are too thin an area. I may re design and instead of the mounting being inset, make them pop out a bit for extra support/strength.
