We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This is a tool (inspired by http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:26025) to help you bend hookup wires of the correct length for your electronics breadboard projects. You can find a lot more detail at http://thegaragelab.com/posts/breadboard-wire-bender-tool.html
The simplest way:
Download the STL file, run it through your slicer and print. The STL provided goes from 'skip 2 holes' to 'skip 12 holes' and will print with a bed area of
15cm x 15cm (6 inch x 6 inch).
Download the OpenSCAD source file, adjust the parameters at the top of the file, generate the STL, run it through your slicer and print. The parameters are fairly self explanatory (for more details go to http://thegaragelab.com/posts/breadboard-wire-bender-tool.html).

So what's this mean?
We're sure thegaragelab would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
