The spring design requires the filament to be somewhat flexible and elastic. Design files are linked below for anyone who wants to adjust the spring thickness / tolerances. PolyMax isn't quite elastic enough for this spring, but Colorfabb PLA/PHA (which is more flexible than normal PLA) seems to work well. A new version is available, this one should works better with the more brittle plastics.

Doesn't work in PLA and a Prusa i3 Rework with a nozzle of 0.4 and 0.20 per layer. Any ideas ?

I printed this and was psyched to have a 3D printed carabiner. Unfortunately it broke as soon as I tried to open the gate after placing it. Suggestions?

I printed with 70% and they work great

What printer do you have that is some pretty great resolution.

How much infill should I use?

I printed those at 100% infill, but it should be fine with much less.

Great Project! I also like this one http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1014396
