great design. thanks for sharing.
quick question : how do you prevent rotation of the holds ?
Do you have holds with 2 holes ?
Do you just tighten them really hard ? (have you measured how much torque do you put ?)

How adult safe would you say these are? Is it that they have generally larger grips or that structurally they might not be safer for heavier people? They look great and now I don't need to model my own. :)

They could work for adults. I weight a 170 and they hold me on a vertical wall. I think if you make them with good infill you should be OK.

Yup, I'm 215lbs and at 50% infill (and slow, ginger movements) they supported me while testing my wall.

How did you mount these? Lag bolts or screws?

I used a Allen head bolt, flat washer and a t nut to mount them to the plywood.

Hi I really like your models, I'm planing to build a climbing wall for my kid. I'm thinking to print rocks with printer bu wonder if it is safe or not. Did you build any wall with printed rocks. I dont want to make him fall because of a cracked/splitted rock. Plese let me know if you tested printed rocks on a wall. Regards

" I dont want to make him fall because of a cracked/splitted rock"

Have you ever been climbing? I have been climbing both outdoors and indoors a lot. Falling is not something that should be unexpected, it is something that happens. Often. This means you must either be climbing with a rope or have crash pads (of course only up to a certain height). I have seen wall holds of a professional climbing wall breaking, being the reason why the climber fell. So you should not worry if the holds are coming of. This is just one reason why the climber falls, there are a lot more and they are a lot more probable. Your child will fall.

The problem is not that it might be insecure because the climber might fall. The issue is that these pillows that you can see on the photos aren't crash pads, they are pillows. Would you let your child jump from 3m height onto these pillows? And there is nobody behind the girl "spotting" her!!! This means nobody is making sure that in case she is falling, she does not fall on her head. She might quite easily fall to the side with her head hitting the concrete wall.

The main problem is not that these holds might crack. The main problem is that this will be used by people who have no training in climbing.

Yes

I printed all the holds on the wall. One of the holds that I made was not printed hot enough and the layers where not attached very well and it eventually broke but the rest of them still work and it has been 8 months.

Hi.
under a nozzle and a layer designed model?

yeah that looks really safe LOL

If you like safe stuff then you are not a kid!
