I just took measurements of my engraver to make my own PCB Holders. I just happened to check Thingiverse before I did...Thanks for sharing.

Good idea, but I'd advise some form of vertical holding as well in case Murphy's Law strikes as it inevitable does ;-)

Hi mmorao,
thanks for your message. The holder have a bevel/slope on the one side that touches the PCB from the side. So, the PCB can't be moved in any direction, also not vertically.
I will add some more pictures/sketches later that will clarify what I mean.

All right, I see that should do the trick. This is trauma speaking, a 1500W spindle with a 6mm cutter grabbing a thick slab of perspex and shooting it across the room suddenly makes anyone a faithful of the Thick And Rigid Holders Church :-))

I suppose your PCB plates and engraving cutters will not raise the same issues :-) But your design does look nice, practical and well though out!


Oh, this sounds very professional, in this case of course, no one should use this holder made from PLA/ABS :-)

My machine is only a small one, good enough (and powerful enough only) for milling/drilling PCBs. I assume also all the guys and girls who buy and run a 3D-Printer and/or CNC hopefully know what they are doing :-) but maybe I will leave a note in the description...
