bow flex sells extra weight or pipes. mines goes to like 300+ on each side now

I don't know. I can't think of any way to be sure other than to test it out. They'd wind up being fairly large weights, in any case. Even if they're filled with lead shot. I would venture to say that the PLA (or even ABS) would be fairly stressed under the load. You might want to consider taulman 618 nylon. http://www.taulman3d.com/ That stuff is pretty tough.

How much weight do you think the PLA can handle ?
My bowflex (52.5 lbs) is getting too light. Do you think 75 lbs is possible?

Mmm, I could always use another set of kettlebells, but I'm debating between using my amazon prime membership for the free shipping, or printing a pair of kettlebells. And with my RostockMAX in the mail, I'll be able to build large ones.... wonder how the plastic will hold up to the weight....
