Original parts were designed to be printed vertically. This makes the parts susceptible to cracking along the layer lines. I remade the parts so that they can be printed laying flat with the layer lines parallel to the rods. This should make them a bit stronger and alleviate cracking.
Added files with a little looser tolerances. Rod hole is increased to 10.2mm, M3 nut cutouts are enlarged to 5.8mm.
30 ~ 40%
Print with the flat side down rod cutout up, except on the A17 Top part. Use supports on the A17 top if your printer can't handle the overhang. At least 2 shells on the sides and 3~4 on the top and bottom should make these plenty strong. PETg/nylon is also recommended, but PLA should work.
Print 4 of the Bottoms, 3 of the A16 Tops, and 1 of the A17 Top.
Use some sandpaper around a dowel or a wrench socket and smooth out the inside of A17 so it fits better around the rod.
