Updated the files. Now with Parameters.
The .scad files will let you define your own custome zip plates.

I agree - promising. I was searching Thingiverse for an OpenSCAD zip tie to replace some screws in existing stuff. This is a good start at replacing lots more screws.
For that matter, in the past I've wanted some laser-cut boxes to be zip-tie-able, and I actually can't see why such shouldn't be done for large printed objects. I'll have to keep in mind having large-object scripts have an optional output for the zip-tie holes.

I guess the question that everyone will have is; why? Well, I donâ€™t have a bunch of screws and nuts lying around. Other constructions sets donâ€™t have all the parts that I will want. Hopefully I will have a good set of items and maybe other people will also have ideas. I will be working on the .scad files to make them with parameters.
I have create a .scad file that will let you have full control of the Zip-Plate. It allows features at each of the spacing locations. Features include: Solid, Big hole (useful to create contiguous holes in a board), zip tie hole, zip tie hold rotated 90 degrees, a round hole the size of the zip tie width, or a custom size hole. You will have to play with it a bit, but all you have to do is change the values in the big matrix. It can support a board at 205mm by 205mm if your spacing is set to 5mm.
