Since Christmas is over, it's time to put up all of the decorations. I will be placing a lot of mine in plastic bags to help ensure that they aren't chewed on by any pests or collecting too much dust. I made this so that I can zip tie my bags shut and easily cut the zip ties next year without damaging the bag. It will allow me to reuse the bags as long as they are in good shape. Place this on the rolled up end of the bag (rounded side to the bag) and put a zip tie on it. The groove in the piece will give you room to put your cutters in and cut the zip tie without damaging the bag when it comes time to open it back up.

I am sure these will scale up easily if you have very large zip ties.

It's so small I didn't feel it needed to have a lower amount of infill.

I also put a little fillet on the inside of the ridge to help ensure that it prints the bridged area better. Printed very quickly and without any raft or support. Print one out and make sure it fits your bag and zip tie. They fit the bags and zip ties I am working perfectly.

This is a great idea

Thanks. Simple and small. I printed 20 of them and I think it took up 7 grams of filament.
