What!? No guns? Where's the old ultra violence, you say? I know nothing of knitting. My sister in law asked for a loom that could come apart. I said ok.

She hasn't told me she hates it yet. I believe she wanted it for knitting an "infinity scarf(?)". I have not tried knitting with this.


Print at least 1 "Break_Loom_v3_Barb", and 3 "Break_Loom_v3". The "Break_Loom_v3r" model can be used to created larger loom shapes. Print it sturdy. The spires have integral supports built into them. They require an unnecessary force for knitting to break. Extra walls, and at least .2 infill should suffice. Your gcode may treat the female connecter oddly. It is ok if the circular part prints funky. The inner ring is more of a guide for the sturdy outside supports.

Great design, but it was absolute hell to make in PLA. I shattered three pieces before I finally got it to work (kinda - the one piece actually has a crack in it. But it doesn't appear to affect structural stability or functionality, so I'm going with it).

what is the difference between v3 and v3r?

It turns the opposite way. They are mirrored copies of each other.

I see now...I feel silly for asking now hahha

No problem.

great looking little knitting loom. I loom knit - do you know what the measurement is from center of a peg to the center of the next peg?

What is the diameter of this loom?

crank up your temp for better bonding between layers

More like "Breaking Loom" - .25 infill, broke numerous pins on many occasions.

This, most likely, has more to do with your print quality than the model itself. What printer are you using? What material? Layer height? The ones I have printed for friends and family have been going strong for well over a year.

.25 infill (rectilinear)
.3 layer height
Solidoodle 2 (Fully calibrated & Banding issues resolved)
ABS (Natural Octave)
195C nozzle temp
100C Bed temp
Fully enclosed print area for better layer bonding.

Way too cold for abs

thank you for this.. is there a way to make bigger ones?

maybe sections with 8 and 10 pegs?

That could be done. I modeled this one to be printed on my TOM. I may attempt to make a larger one when I get a larger 3d printer.

Awesome, my wife wants me to make her one for her birthday in a week and a half. :) gonna get off easy this year. hehe.

Made some for my wife for her birthday, her birthday is in a month, ahead of schedule this year xD

Excellent, my wife uses these.
