Paper Clip to set up simple photo background by slepcat May 28, 2013

Featured Thing!

Description

Simple background for macro photography.
With A4 paper, you can easily set up small photo background.

[29 May 2013] I uploaded new STL files by which you don't need to rotate or move models to print. Also, I changed file names to make it clear. (The design is not changed at all)

PaperClips Rev2.stl is pair of the left and right paper clips.

I've never imagined that such many people like this idea. Thank you!!

Great idea!

RHS prints perfectly, the LHS has too small a gap to print in PLA (220C, taped cold bed, .3 layer height, .4 noz - rep 2 defaults). tried twice and exactly the same - single and together. needs another .25/.5mm in the gap.
yet to try other materials.

Do I smell spammer?

Hi - Great idea! I just printed the pair file on MB Replicator 2 in PLA plastic. The right side printed well (with very tight clearance for the paper) and i could thread the paper through it with some effort. The left side had some melted filament in it and the paper could not be threaded through it. We removed the blockage with a pocket knife and now it works much better. Did anyone else encounter this issue and if so have suggestion for what to do to prevent/remediate the issue?

I love the idea, but it make no sence this is out of date, now we have

adobe cs5 after efect,, several other?

im glad people like your ideas
i think thingiverse need to get a payment system, atlest some symbolic amout for each download. no one from a normal contry will start cry over 0.10 cent
if you use http://www.physical3d.com/ you may get a change of earn some few bucks on your 3d print i earnd 0.40 cent ,
but the site is 100%new

Brilliant! I will use this often

I tried this but the gap is on the bottom and my bed squishes down a bit too much. I tried to flip it, but the other side is not flat... it doesn't seem like that's necessary and it would be a lot easier to print on the solid side.

Very cool idea.

What kind of filament did you use for the shark? Is that the wood based stuff?

YOU FARGIN GENIUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I COULDA USED THIS 100 TIMES.

markbrannan on May 30, 2013 said:

Nice work! I think these would print better if they were flipped vertically, so that the gap for the paper is facing upwards - that way there'd be no overhangs in the print.

Simple & useful - it's always the best combination!

HobgoblinSteve on May 30, 2013 said:

awesome, I just was just taking pictures for an ebay item last night thinking that theres got to be a better way to hold paper and take a picture at the same time.

GENIUS.

Great idea!!! The best use for trip, small size - and paper available anywhere. (sorry for my english)

Tothe on May 30, 2013 said:

Looks like it would be good for photographing anything small, and better than my old method of trying to set op a paper backdrop.

kwixson on May 30, 2013 said:

Genius! Thanks.

TCorgard on May 30, 2013 said:

Just have to comment, but that shark looks like it was done with that new Wood fiber filament.

slepcat on May 31, 2013 said:

Yes, It's Laywoo-D3 wood filament :)
