A Cable Tie that works and can do the heavy lifting ! Can be customized for various purposes including a hole for a Screw and a Release Tab.
Print with 100% fill, 0.27mm Layer Height and 0 Shells.
Recommended materials to print with, ABS and Taulman3D 618 Nylon.
ABS: Should be considered "Single Careful Use", i.e. clamp large items where the bend of the cable tie does not exceed the strength of the material.
618 Nylon: Is the best choice of material, and has similar performance to commercially made cable ties, as they are also made from Nylon. Maximum length cable tie prints well on a Rep 1 with 3M Blue Masking Tape on top of Kapton @ 120mm/s, 240C / 55C with zero warping / lifting.
PLA: Will work, but only for light things as it's fairly brittle.
