Paper Clip to set up simple photo background
by slepcat, published
Simple background for macro photography.
With A4 paper, you can easily set up small photo background.
The design is refined.
The clips have weight to prevent floating. And can be attached with other and easy to carry.
*The neckless in photos is the work by (c)Sui.
[31 August 2014] Rev.3 uploaded.
[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!!
There is 3 version of .stl data. Rev2 is old design.
New design is "Rev3 with handle" and have weight and can be attached with other, but need some parts and assembly.
"Rev3 no weight" is look like new design but have no weight and can't attach with other. This version is basically same with rev2, but don't need to assemble.
Please see the pic of instruction.
In sample photos, I use M3 cap screw instead of M3 bolt. But I recommend to use bolt because the handle may slip with cap screw's round head.
PLA is favored than ABS, because it can be soften with heat and this make easier to push the weight (M3 Nuts) into the hole.
