clamp with screw holes by 3Design3 Jan 3, 2013

Description

A clamp to fix a shelf board to a iron bar. It should be 2mm thick everywhere, but it still in an experimental phase (some part is only 1.5mm thick). Feel free to improve it!

At the beginning I tried this, indeed, but the problem was that the structure was printed with a gap, i.e. the clamp had "walls" on both side and an empty space on the inside. The gaps continued in every layer, withthe naked eye you could see two vertically printed layers (the "wall", a gap and another "wall"). Besides, there was a blob at the beginning of each layer (i stopped after 5-6 layers, so I don't know what would have happened after.

The only thing I'd do is rotate it so that it prints on its "side", rather than "standing up". That way it will be much stronger at the top, and your screw holes will be much cleaner.
