Summary

I DID NOT MAKE THIS!! I like to keep things I'm printing in one location, i'm simply uploading this from another site. The creator is Erik Cederberg(https://www.youmagine.com/meduza), he gets 100% of the credit!
Taken from original page:

A stackable fuseholder for automotive blade fuses that uses nothing more than 3D printed parts, M3 screws and regular blade connectors

I thought that most fuse holders were way too bulky for a project of mine, so i made these instead :) Print one endpiece, one startpice and as many middle pieces you want to stack for your project.
Materials and methods

For the total:

  • 2 pcs M3 Screws of a length that suites your stack
  • 2 pcs M3 Nuts
    For each holder:
  • 2 6.3mm blade connectors
  • 2 pcs of cable, i used 1,5mm^2

merci du partage

I love these kinds of things, don't need one at this time, but just wanted to mention the brilliance of this :-). Good work mate

Keep in mind that fuses are thermal devices, and they work by getting hot as current flows through them.

For a massive 1000% overload, the fuse element will blow very quickly, no problem, nothing else has much chance to get hot. But for maybe a 125% overload, things just sit there, getting hot for several minutes, before the body and wires are hot enough that they're no longer effectively heatsinking the fuse element and finally the element heats itself past its melting point, and the fuse blows. But in the meantime, what becomes of a thermoplastic fuseholder?

ABS has a melting point at 210-240c, so there should not be any problems with the fuseholder. If a fuse heats up to the point its melting plastic, that is an issue with poor contact between the fuse blades and the fuseholder contacts. The fuse should always blow before generating enough heat to melt the plastice housing its in.

Something so simple, just amazing. Very impressed.

What size fuse and spade is this for? ATO/ATC? MAXI? Something else?

ATO/ATC

That is an interesting design. Would be interested in seeing something like this done for outdoors and sealed :)

I had started designing something like you mentioned already. Stay tuned.

I really like this design. Just one question, why print it in the orientation you did?

Not really a reason, should print just fine with the flat side down!

I just wanted to chime in and say this is genius! I love the idea and the approach. Great Job!!!!
