I found that the Slim LM8UU Holder would snap if forced so I adapted it for side printing with super strong results.


Download and print! They really are much stronger when you get the filaments along the bend. I added ramps to avoid unnecessary stringing.

If slicing with skeinforge the standard one shell works fine and 30% infill is plenty!

Plausible improvements: I might turn the nut trap so that no bridging is required if I can manage it in the modeler. Stay tuned.

I like your stronger approach. Is it easy for you to post a file that can be changed? Im in need of LM12UU holders and widening yours would be quite easy ;)


Got it! Uploading! :-D

I'll see what I can do.

sHELL'S one?two?three? FILL? 40%?

or more ?? nut traps on the ears not needed? what size nuts?

i will print some going to Slic3r them. see what happens.

thank you

I used only the one shell since skeinforge has a tendency to skip the infill in thin parts like this one otherwise. And 30% infill was apparently enough. I guess you could try even less since I haven't been able to break the part even when I force it. Don't forget to post feedback!
