Printed perfect on my Hupercube,Separation requires a little firmness which is what you want , Perfect thank you.

Great to know you enjoyed it!
Thanks for the comment.

Do you think this can be used as an actual joint for two straight pieces?

In theory yes, though it would be hard to machine if you keep the round edges :)
The only potential issue is that to assemble both pieces you have to:

  • place them parallel with a delta Z (to align the openings)
  • slide them inward with an angled movement vector
    (sorry difficult to explain without the mechanical pieces in hand)
    So, because of this weird assembly movement it might be difficult to build a furniture...

Thanks, hope you enjoyed it.
