Description

What!? No guns? Where's the old ultra violence, you say? I know nothing of knitting. My sister in law asked for a loom that could come apart. I said ok.

She hasn't told me she hates it yet. I believe she wanted it for knitting an "infinity scarf(?)". I have not tried knitting with this.

Instructions

Print at least 1 "Break_Loom_v3_Barb", and 3 "Break_Loom_v3". The "Break_Loom_v3r" model can be used to created larger loom shapes. Print it sturdy. The spires have integral supports built into them. They require an unnecessary force for knitting to break. Extra walls, and at least .2 infill should suffice. Your gcode may treat the female connecter oddly. It is ok if the circular part prints funky. The inner ring is more of a guide for the sturdy outside supports.

More like "Breaking Loom" - .25 infill, broke numerous pins on many occasions.
This, most likely, has more to do with your print quality than the model itself. What printer are you using? What material? Layer height? The ones I have printed for friends and family have been going strong for well over a year.

thank you for this.. is there a way to make bigger ones?

maybe sections with 8 and 10 pegs?
That could be done. I modeled this one to be printed on my TOM. I may attempt to make a larger one when I get a larger 3d printer.
Awesome, my wife wants me to make her one for her birthday in a week and a half. :) gonna get off easy this year. hehe.
Made some for my wife for her birthday, her birthday is in a month, ahead of schedule this year xD
