TinkerToy Adapter for dowels

My wife makes great 3D cake creations. You can see her stuff at To make the cakes stand up, she needs to use dowels (sticks). But, it's trouble getting those sticks to stand up.

So, I designed & printed some simple adapters to allow the dowels to fit into a shaft just the right size, which can then be screwed into a platform.

The first iteration worked just fine! The fit was snug.

So, now, just copy the design into an array & print a set of 15 in one shot!
