@Konsi,

Without knowing how exactly you designed this I can only give you some general suggestions. It looks like the wall thickness of the outer edge of the mount is too small, I can tell you that particular outside measurement is not critical, meaning the device doesn't care if it is bigger around. Make the outside diameter 1 mm larger, that will spread .5 mm all around making the smallest wall thickness 0.759 mm. The other dimention appears to be a result of the taper used for the locking arms, two things you can do here; the first is to not taper it as much, that alone might get you just over 0.3 mm, then thicken the bottom sides of the arms to that those locking tabs are 0.4 mm at their smallest edge. I am assuming the rest is correct.

That is all I can really tell you right now. The other suggestion would be to print in HP MJF PA12 only if you are going for the minimum wall thicknesses. The HP will print with a liquid binder and shorter layer heights that will provide a stronger print.
Thank you for your help! I will go over the model with my brother again (who knows the CAD stuff). I anyway had ordered in MJF PA12, but still got the feedback that it is too thin in these places.

@Konsi
There is a material page on Shapeways (https://www.shapeways.com/materials/mul ... usion-pa12) under the tab Design Guidelines, where it specifies minimum wall thicknesses, part maximum and minimum size, and a lot of other specifications, that should help your brother design something that will be accepted for printing by Shapeways.

@Konsi, if you are in the EU try i.Materialize they have printers in the E.U. and might be cheaper for you. They also use the MJF printers.
