I really liked the original but i found that the holes were too wide for my parts. (3 mm holes and the shaft being about 2.2 mm)
The block was 15 mm high and had a "free space" of 4 mm below the toolhole.
I have reduced it by 4 mm to save material.

As you can see in the picture, the original and my derivate can link together.
Respect to Arvin for this.

One enhancement that could be done is to put the linking pins and holes in the middle of the side. It is now slightly off-center.


Use the .STL file and run it through Cura.
Use your ultimaker to print this.
When running at 50 mm/s you get a nice result.

i saw that the ancestor was not saved correctly.
it is http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:17397
it should be ok now

Funny you should publish this today. I just uploaded a customizer version that would have allowed you to change just about everything. Block size, hole size, and the number of rows and columns.
great minds at work ;)

I will check ik out soon.
Is it difficult to put the holes at an angle. ( about 30 degrees or so )
I think this will make it easier to select a bit that is on the inside.
