We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Want an alternative to fiddly screw terminal blocks? This design allows easy joins between wires with push fit plugs. The plugs are for use between stranded copper wire and solid wire, like leds and phone charger wires.
The little holes are for twisting together solid core wires like leds and resistors.
The example file is for a moodlamp, but you can use the openscad file to create your own circuits.
Laser cut the pattern from 3mm mdf. Do the engraving first, then the cut.
This will get you 8 kits. To build the kit, see this instructable: http://www.instructables.com/id/The-kit/
For the openscad files: https://github.com/mattvenn/cad/tree/master/openscad/pushfitcircuit
If you want to use a different thickness of material, regenerate the dxf with the openscad file. The engraving is a separate SVG and will need to be merged (I used inkscape).

So what's this mean?
We're sure mattvenn would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
