Nice design. I added a 3mm bolt through the body to clamp the floss and a 1.5 mm hole at the handle end to guide the floss up to the bolt. I have made several of them and pre-loaded them with floss. I used the springiness of ABS to put good tension on the floss.

Nice! Have you posted your remix here on Thingiverse? It'd be cool to have them linked together!

I called it Floss Holder and posted it as a re-make of your bow.

It looks great!

Thanks. This is the first time I've posted on here.You prompted me to give it a try.

I used "PLA", printed it with a .35 extruder with 0.2mm layer height, a little hotter that usual and solid(100% infill) and 5 perimeters...
didn't bend at all when I used it.

Good call! PLA is a great material for this.

A shallower arc might minimize bending.
