Stronger Shelf Bracket
by richard_j_m, published
This is a design inspired by a failed print of thingiverse.com/thing:34422. The object came unstuck just after the printing the bottom half. I was so impressed by the strength of the unfinished print I decided to make my own design that was half the size but also with a much larger surface area on the print bed to try to stop the object moving during print.
Please Note: The brackets I've printed with PLA have flowed somewhat in the hot environment of my workshop (30-40C) so I'm reprinting in ABS which should last longer. Just something to be aware of.

I was partially thinking it would be a good bracket for the top plate of the Prusa Air 2 printer. I currently have single hole metal ones in place but this design would be a much more rigid one than the currently suggested printed ones.
It would but as I wanted to fillet a lot of the edges that would be difficult to achieve via something like openscad. Is there something in particular you were after?
