2020-02-11 (Tu) SocketSetStack

One of the problems with my prints, as evidenced in some photographs, as they would peel up from the print bed during construction, and end with a convexity on their bottom face. I already tried changing the bed temperature, so I tried a different bed material in the form of a round mirror from a hobby store. Sadly, this didn't fix anything, and I had more failed prints, so I went back to using masking tape.

As the modeling was concerned, I added a hemisphere to the end of each limb, like a socket wrench. I am counting on the elasticity of the plastic to provide enough friction to keep a socket in place, but still easy to place and replace. It also has to be rugged enough to withstand regular use. If I wanted to spend more time, I would try to design a living hinge into the model.
Finally, it can hold a socket in place against gravity
