3D model description

This is a simple shelf bracket designed for IKEA(s) [BURHULT (c)] design.

They (greedy people from Sweden) wouldn't sell the simple [plastic shitty] design they used to sell, so why not to design something similar with a even cooler design than something even a student could design?
(or a former student as designers and architects are all "forever-students", we all know that... Please don't kid ourself...)

You won't store your big book or "working out stuff" on these, but LEGO or other small kids toys should fit well for years.

Please adapt to your intentions in terms of skin thickness and filling ratio.
If you're not an engineer : I used 2 (yes only 2!!) 0.4 walls and 33% infill for brackets in the picture.
But the secret is within the infill overlay with walls that has been raised to 15% in cura, with option to make stronger and continueous bonds with walls.

(If you don't understand, this will fall appart and you will have to deal with your ignorance and your angry wife.husband, sorry...)

Here, everybody likes them and they still did not break after 3 weeks!!!

So that it is at least as strong as IKEA stuff, I guess.

3D printing settings

Print those flat. 0.6 nozzle & 0.3 or 0.25 layer height might be stronger, but 0.4/0.2 is fine too.
Try to increase the number of walls and top bottom layer to your convenience to increase stiffness
