It would be a fair bit easier to just epoxy or otherwise glue a piece of plastic to the existing part and add serrations to it.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

It could work, if you print it dense enough. But, I wouldn't trust the PLA to not shear apart when you try priming it with a heavy spring load.

 

Although, if you print it out and use it as the base for a greensand casting in aluminium, you might be able to get away with using that design.

I know how to help you because I have broken every rule in the book.

I say try it, but if it breaks when priming (test with thick gloves so no bleeding everywhere) print it again and give it a thin coat or epoxy or resin and try it again.

Nice model. If I can get some printer time at the hackerspace, I'll run one off in ABS, 100% infill, and report back.
