So I've been increasingly irritated with my Ender. I think this might stave off the need to replace it for a while.

Whats the best way to print this while preventing it from falling over? I mean, I assume that's possible/likely, right?

That should print with no real concerns. No overhangs, nothing weird, just send it

But yeah, why not PVC pipe? You've got a printer, you can make stuff to fit the PVC.

I haven't actually measured, but I don't think its PVC dimensions. Its a small post for the solar lights that @APRIL keeps running over with the mower. The originals are metal, so these are easier for her to destroy.

Sounds like a good way to burn through filament, especiallywith Ape driving the mower.

Why not make an adapter from the light to a PVC tube? The filament part is not likely to get broken, and PVC is easy to replace.

I think if you just swat her with a rolled-up news paper whenever she destroys it, eventually shell stop doing it
