This is to make a #41 drive chain (almost). The width is for 1/8" sprokets, but it's otherwise #41 spec. I made this to use for the Lyman Filament Extruder. The stress on the chain is too much for it. This chain can take a fair bit of pull, but the extruder was just too much. Maybe someone has a use for this.

Maybe I should make this my test print for polycarbonate and see if the chain will work made out of that?

I can print the middle pieces but the sides are too many for my printer.
Can you please make sets of 1 from both, as my printer software can add more so it fits. Thanks in advance !

Hmmm, I wonder if it would be strong enough to replace the belts on a printer?

No. At least, not a good printer. You would be introducing a huge amount of backlash.

I love it! And I'll have to give it a try one of these days!!

(it remembers me my 1st thing in Thingiverse, printers have changed so much since then... )

 Nice!! <- two thumbs up

Yep something like this is in my design imaginings.

Thanks for sharing :)
