The SCAD file has some parameters at the top that you can manipulate to match your can. The connection module can also be tweaked if you want to try a different shape (it will automatically be mirrored in the positive and negative. Change the parameters to match your cans and then print out as many as you need. Glue/Tape the tabs together and you've got a stacking system!
