3/8" Dowel rod clip, snap, hinge... whatever.

Prints (0)


Summary This is a clip / hinge to mount a piece of 3/8 inch dowel rod. I have provided a 1" and 1/2" version. I needed it to snap an exhaust shroud around a window to vent the ABS fumes out of the house. I am using the 1/2' item as a clip and the 1" item as a hinge. They printed very nicely with no supports. *** After using this as a snap for a few times, I found that it would break due to the tightness of the loop opening. I have uploaded new files. Two are half inch and one inch hinges or holders with the loop opening similar to the original since the intent is to snap it in and leave it. The other two are half inch and one inch snaps with a wider opening to reduce the stress on the joint when repeatedly snapping it in and out. I am also doubling the infill to 50% for my next print. Print Settings Printer: FlashForge Creator Pro Rafts: No Supports: No Resolution: .2 Infill: 50% Notes: I use a glass plate with hair spray (best upgrade ever). Printed with ABS at 220C for extruder and 87 for build plate.
