Sorry to say but this design does not work. The screws are too long for the design, and the nuts are too small for printing. I found the original file on Tinkercad and managed to maneuver the items for optimal printing, but after printing, I found that the angles on the handles to be impossible. When constructed, the handles only open about 1/4 of the way before getting stopped by themselves. If the joints were spaced farther apart, this might help.

Otherwise, this looks like a good design, but it needs serious work if it is to be functional.

if you use cura you should be able to split into multi objects so you can re arrange for better printing, not sure about other programs thoe

right, like the handles are separate, and the screws are separate into different download parts...I'm having a problem printing this because of the overhang on the handle...but it's still nice

Can you put this into separate parts?

separate downloads?
