Compact Threaded Freak Insert Case

I've started another project, but I can't take complete credit for it. In an effort to come up with a more compact method of storing Freak inserts inside a rigid case, I remixed this design from Thingiverse into a container for a full kit minus one insert inside the barrel. It kind of reminds me of the Evil Pipe kits only without the barrel. The whole thing comes in at just under 5 1/2" tall by 3" wide. This is really more of a personal project since the source model is protected under creative commons license that prohibits commercial use.

Oooh, nice! I like it! Did you do the knurling? Makes me wish I had more than one insert, ha ha.

I can't take credit for the knurling. I started with the revolver shaped tube for the inserts and thought "what would be the best way to secure these?". I recalled seeing the container in the link on Thingiverse and figured it would be a good idea to marry the two together with a few tweaks here & there.

Once I get this printed and I know it works well, I'll be posting this on Thingiverse for free as a remix.

I got the main part off the printer this morning. Unfortunately, the whole thing delaminated in chunks in my hands. I suspect that the infill was printed too fast in an effort to bang this out faster. Even so, it took almost 20 hours at .02 layer height and 20% infill. Frankly, it's not worth a second attempt. I can come up with a more efficient design on my own without remixing another. I can toss this design on the scrap pile along with the shredded remains of this print.

Aah man! I hate when those long prints get wasted. Great concept though, I wish it had worked or better for ya.
