I think it's better to print with ABS, the male parts on PLA is too easy to break.

This guy is a brilliant designer (you should watch his YouTube video where he shows his shop, and shows this measuring tool).

However ...

This design is fundamentally flawed. I printed enough parts (using Hatchback PLA) to begin to assemble it, but the little press-fit male parts broke off. So, I printed some more, but this time paid meticulous attention to make sure the male parts were clean and crisp. I then used two different sized twist drills to clean out and slightly enlarge each hole, and then used my X-acto knife to clean out an chamfer each hole.

Same result.

In the end out of six of the parts with male fittings, only two survived my attempt at assembly.

I do like his vice covers, however, and recommend those.

what is the right name of this tool? I want to buy such a thing on ebay and Iam looking for a metal version
