Load tests

VFL Staffer Elizabeth Meiklejohn is testing the load strength of some parts 3d printed on our Connex 3 Objet 260 printer. Elizabeth is building an attachment for a traditional hand-weaving loom where the end caps are attached to the end of a threaded rod and guide the threads through the loom.

Thus she was testing to be sure that the end caps could handle enough load that they wouldn't break under normal tension.
