Well it depends on what material you print with. I used a Stratasys 3D printer with their proprietary ABSPlus material. With that material, it was plenty strong, at least for our tests! I've not tested it with regular ABS.
Have you tested it under load? I find it really hard to imagine the snap-on design can bear the force exerted upon the spoon when the axle is under the resistance of a loaded generator.

STL and solid works parts are included. If you have any suggestions for improvements, I would be happy to make them.
The paddles snap into position.
Model has been printed and tested successfully. Pictures to come.
