So I went ahead and 3D printed part of the hinge, but before really committing to all of them Im curious on the force that is applied to them and if it will withstand that load. The part has reinforced continues strands of carbon fiber inside the part so its between the strength of nylon and aluminium. My crazy self wants this to be as light as possible, so using these would help reduce wait even if its a little. Opinions thoughts?
I also have a 3D printed 17-4 version of this printing currently. The part though should be lighter then the normal aluminum part due to how its printed. This is the other method I’m looking at to save weight, but its more time consuming to produce. (Will Post Picture when finished)
