Hand-Screw Clamp

This is a proof of concept of a new thread design which can make a hand-screw type clamp, commonly used in woodworking. It won't match the strength of an actual clamp, but I tried to make a clamp that was as strong as possible, with 100% 3d printed parts. For this, careful consideration needed to be made so that each part respects the grain of the 3d print. It is, however, still a 3d printed plastic clamp, so don't get too crazy with it!

See my process for designing this here.

Print Settings:

I printed everything with standard draft settings, in PLA. Through testing, I found that the small "SlideHinge" parts are always the first things to fail. They break off at the very tip of the end that captures the rotating knob. So if you wanted it stronger with minimal changes, you could print the "SlideHinge" part solid.

This is tricky to assemble. The design intention wasn't to make a simple clamp. It is more of a demonstration of a 3d printed mechanism to make this special type of clamp.

Also, adding some sort of wax from a candle / soap / etc. will help make clamping much smoother.

Ikea Lack Table Brace

The Iconic Ikea Lack Table, Sleek, $8, Versatile. I use them for my 3d Printers and My 3D Printed CNC (in progress) But they have one fatal flaw. When you put a machine that creates oscillations on a table such as a Lack, it follows the oscillations, and weakens over time. This is my attempt to solve the problem and so far it works great.

The holes are designed for standard #5 x 1" wood screws. The outermost holes are aligned to hit the thin piece of MDF that internally makes up the frame of the table. I have had best results using CA glue on the contact surfaces and then securing further with screws. There is not a lot of "meat" internally on the table, so this seems to solve that. The chamfer on the holes is such that button head screws will also work fine.

The screws that meet the leg sections are staggered as to not interfere with on another. I am also well aware the 7 screws plus superglue is overkill, but it works and screws are cheap.

Use 5-6 Walls, and an equal amount of top and bottom layers with 25% infill

I printed these for 3 tables in PETG, Because it is what I primarily use. But I am sure that PLA will work fine.

Uses Approximately 200g of Filament and 4 Braces can fit on a standard print bed.

Please let me know if you personally run into any issues and would like me to change the file accordingly. I have also included the F3D file for your own changing.

Seal gun nozzles and cork

Those designs are different types of nozzles and a cork for seal guns.
You can chose nozzle sizes between 2 and 5 mm. I like the 2mm for delicate works.
All models can be printed without support and need no post treatment.
For a smooth result use 0.4 layer thickness. The walls are designed to be to layers thick.

Clip Peg - General purpose

General purpose self sprung spring clip. For use with anything e.g. packaging, clothes, fabric, paper, kitchen, washing, peg, money, notes, dollar, packet, photograph, note, photo, picture, bag, bags, binliner, bin

Instructions

For more durable clips, I'd recommend using a filament like Colorfabb's XT range (which is also FDA approved) or ABS.

Simple Toothpaste Squeezer

There are lots of Thingiverse objects to help with the problem of getting all the toothpaste out of a tube. This design is simpler than anything I have seen. It should print easily on any printer, cleans up readily, and works simply and well. The design is clean and unobtrusive.

Instructions
  1. Print the squeezer. Clean up and sand as needed (very easy on this simple, flat object).

  2. Flatten the end of the toothpaste tube a bit, then stick the end through the narrow slot in the squeezer. This may take a bit of wiggling depending on the tube.

  3. Pull the squeezer towards the full end of the tube as far as possible. Continue to advance the squeezer over time as you empty the tube, ensuring that all the contents are used.

Fully assembled 3D printable wrench

Please consider supporting me on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/DanielNoree

After watching the infamous video from a few years back where Z-Corp prints a fully working wrench i decided i wanted to do the same thing on my own printer.

Now, i am not talking about a "print-several-pieces-and-then-assemble" version which there are already a ton of on the internet.
What i wanted to do was something i could print and that would actually be fully working straight out of the printer.
I like to think i came pretty close. All you need to do is to remove the internal support and your done!

Keep in mind this is a proof of concept, i just wanted to see if i could do it.

Updated 2013-10-16: Added "Printable Wrench W Longer Screw" which has a longer "screw" (3mm).

Updated 2013-08-30: I have added two new files. One with a slightly bigger gap between moving parts. This one has 0,55mm gap instead of 0,35mm. Let me know if it works out (in particular with PLA). I have also added a STEP file with no support for anyone who maight want it.

Bonjour,

Comme nombre d'entre nous qui sommes équipés de télécommande RGB LED et comme nous les égarons souvent, j'ai conçu un support de télécommande facile à imprimer de 63mm x 48mm.

A vous de jouer ;)

Hello,

Like many of us who have RGB LED remotes and as we often misplace them, I have designed an easy to print remote control holder measuring 63mm x 48mm.

Enjoy ;)
