2020-02-10 (M) SocketSetStack

My sockets fell off the ends of the printed parts because there was not enough tension. In a standard socket wrench, a spring-loaded ball provides that tension, but I want the entire holder to be printable, so I added tapered ribs.
My revised model with tapered ribs

The first version I printed with ribs had short limbs, and the bumps were too thick to get the socket started. After that, I tried a version with longer arms, but I didn't get any resistance. One of the goals of this project was to make a parametric model for anyone to download and alter, so relying on finicky settings would not work. I will emulate the bead that socket wrenches use.
Not enough friction
