I will see if I can make the holes 3 cm deep. Do I need there to be some material behind the rod so it does not portrude outward? You will probably understand my question if you look at my CAD file.
Windu what do you mean when you say that screw threads gripping into the material won't be enough? So should I make threaded holes?
It doesnt matter if you have material behind the rod or not. Threads that are 3D printed are typically not very strong and VERY hard to get the right tolerances not to mention complex to design. I suggest avoiding threads all-together and using a nut-bolt fastenerhttp://championpartsonline.com.au/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=18713
