Instructions

Choose the battery type you need in the openscad file clip.scad, export to stl, slice and print. I used PLA at 210°, 0.4 mm layer height.

Thread some bared wire through the holes to make the electrical connection to the battery.

The file clip2.scad describes a clip for two AA batteries. It simply consists of two instances of the single battery clip that overlap in the middle.

Printed the clip2.stl again, this time with ABS at 0.3 mm layer height. With ABS I was able to turn of that cool plug-in of skeinforge and print it much faster. Also ABS seems to be better for this task as it's more elastic.
But the contacts were better with PLA. But a bit more wire fixed that :-).
This is great! Thank you!
