Awesome! Printable anchors! I think you should add some jagged edges to make them more like real anchors... I would but I use Rhino instead of openscad and it doesn't have parameterization capabilities that I know of.
A door had come off it's wall where the wood screws had torn out of the soft wood over time and left big holes they couldn't grip in to. I used your thingie to make the holes small again and now my door works again! Thanks!
Spontaniously i would disagree, but I welcome anyone to make a strength test, and report the findings. The lengthwise forces are in the screw, not in the plug. In the plug the forces are radial. To prove my guesstimation wrong, simply use rotate([90,0,0]) in openscad to print laying plugs. You won't be able to print as many at a time though (due to how FDM printing works).
