Inspired by some profesional tesing videos like ( ) I was thinking it should be possible to create something simmilar for testing 3D printed material. I have a very simple goal, mainly interested in relative strength between multiple test pieces. Like to be able to answer f.e. which print temperature gives the best connection between layers.

Materials and methods

2 bearings, tube and connectors ("steigerbuis" bought at the GAMMA), some wood.
