Worked perfectly, and thanks for the various sizes for the slot- I have a number of handwoven dish towels, which are rather thick.

Oh yes, ABS is perfect for this application. I guess it looks as if it wasn't printed because ABS doesn't have the glossiness of PLA.

Nope, it was printed with a 0.4 nozzle at 0.15 mm layer height.

The nozzle I used has a ruby tip, which gives a small gain in quality over brass nozzles, but the difference is not huge.

White Ultimaker ABS is a quite pleasant material for these kind of objects, that is the main reason.

Nice one! Useful but also a quick print. Your print also passes the 3D turing test... From the picture you can't tell whether it was 3D printed or manufactured traditionally. Seems like it was printed with a finer nozzle?! 😃
