FYI, your STL model is showing a bunch of self-intersecting surfaces around the base. I was wondering why I was getting inconsistent results on my printer. Simply3D spotted the issue. Good news, there were a couple ways to work around the problem, so all good now. I am guessing that each slicer will deal with this differently. Anyway, thank you very much for posting this, it was exactly what my daughter was looking for and I do not have the design skills to create it from scratch. If anyone is interested, the following link described the issue and some solutions: https://forum.simplify3d.com/viewtopic.php?t=3177

Made one today which took about 2H:45M. Came out nice. Printed it on my Prusa i3Mk2s with grey PLA on it's base edge with the tines pointing up. Though I did add supports which helped it to keep from coming loose. Supports were easily removed. After I print another, I'll post a picture.

Great, I look forward to seeing it. Thanks for sharing.

I would like to modify this to attach it to another part. Any chance of uploading source files?

The original file is an assembly produced in pro engineer. I can upload it if you can read pro engineer files?
If not can you tell me what you want added and I might be able to help modify the design.

Hi! In what orientation did you print this? With the tines pointing up?

Hi, I printed it as shown in the picture, this was for 3 reasons,

  1. Maximum strength of tines (maximum cross section for layers)
  2. Highest quality side uppermost
  3. Minimum cleaning of raft, I did not fancy trying to clean between every tine.
    Hope this helps. I will be interested in seeing what you come up with,

I'll try it a couple different ways. You must have used supports then, right?

Yes, with supports. Due to the curves in two planes I don't think even with tines pointed up you would get a flat surface to print from.
