sadly, it's a bit too tiny for my printer. it prints the parts but they aren't very stable..

Update 4/19/2013:

Changed design a little to eliminate need for supports/bridging

Fix an issue with objects not located on the same plane (thanks ="thingiverse-9b949ed09d89d211938bc18620855069:disqus" href="http://disqus.com/thingiverse-9b949ed09d89d211938bc18620855069/tremor69 )

Thanks and let me know if you have any problems or suggestions

The three parts are not on the same plane. That prevents me from printing the buckle. Or am I missing something?

I will look at my model tonight and correct that.thanks for the feedback!
