Some different sized bag clips. I wanted the sturdiness of http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5627 and the one piece hinge of http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2868 so I redesigned with the best aspects of both. I also removed the sharp edges so it is comfortable to apply pressure to it.

UPDATE: Use v2 files


I've provided four sizes, 60mm, 80mm, 100mm and 120mm. The pictures show all but the 100mm. I printed in ABS with 3 walls and 10% infill and they seem the perfect balance between strength and flex.

Thanks to the others for inspiration. Please improve on my design and post a derivative!

UPDATE: 18th Sep 2012, I've added new versions (v2) that have an improved larger clip. I recommend using those instead of the originals.

Thank you for this, its a great design and we now use them everyday.

I'm having trouble slicing this with slicr

These things are the best! I've been using the version 1 files for while. Printing some version 2 ones now. Thanks for sharing this object!

Thanks. I'm using them too and they're still going strong. :)

Hi Neil,

I'm an editor for MAKE and we're putting together a guide to useful 3D printed objects and I want to include your bag clip. But I need your last name so I can give you credit.

This is a great idea. It needs a little tweaking as the clips I printed in PLA do not seem to fit into each other. I will try the scad version.

Did you use the v2 files?

Nice derivative of my object! Seems like a good improvement!

Hi Ultimaker! Which object is this?

Nice project, printed well in ABS.  PLA probably a bit too rigid but I'll give it a try for fun.  I love prints that show "civilians" practical use of 3D printers.

I've just printed the 100mm out and it didn't work as well as the others. So I changed the clipping mechanism. If it is an improvement I'll upload the new design.

I love it. It is so useful... and now, "just in time" under demand ;)
