Summary

Replacement ground spike for a typical garden solar light.

Instructions

Layer is fine at a rough setting (.37 or .40). The 'cross' part at the top has built in support that works great with slic3r; just break it off when your print is finished. The top diameter fits a 7/8" pipe.

Watch the tip because it sometimes has a tendency to come off and curl slightly, but it's going in the ground anyway. On a printrbot 6x6, I had to plate it diagonally to fit.

Good luck!

I bought some of these: http://www.amazon.com/Lollipop-Light-Up-Pathway-String/dp/B001HKGFTChttp://www.amazon.com/Lollipop... last year (but from Home Depot).

A number of the spikes froze in the ground. The embedded spikes were broken when fit by the snow blower. I planned on modeling new ones to print. I think this is a great start! I'll most likely just need to scale it and round off the top.

Thanks!

Won't work with the ones I got at target unfortunately. It's insane how fragile those spikes are considering the lights are useless without em.
