    Nope, although, if I did, I would alter the design significantly in order to make it printable without supports.

      What is the purpose and did you design it with specific requirements/

        The purpose was to attach it to trays that I want to stack. The peg in one tray would fit in the slot of the tray above it.

          Have you thought of a sliding dovetail? Here is a link of one you could look at and possibly use as a base design. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4321840

            I have used my own sliding dovetails on several projects, and they've worked really well. I really like that they're generally easy to print without supports.

              I thought this might be a good solution. I'm using something like this now for a universal hot end mount. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3369444/files

                    Ah, yeah. I started to adapt his tool change for my ANet A8 printer, but got side tracked. His channel is good. He is very experienced in 3d design and his videos do not hide failures, which I really like. Like blowing up mainboards or not being able to log into Fusion360 to finish a video.

                      How far did you get? I have been doing a lot of trial and error prints to get a mount and a holder to fit correctly. I'm really excited about this concept. I have gotten the pair to work together, now just getting everything in the proper locations - height and side to side. I also need to attach belt attachments and an EZABL

                            Click it. It's a cad program that runs on your browser. Nothing to install.
