Any chance you can post just a single clip stl? I'd like to re-orient it for better structural support but unable to do so in Cura as it imports as a single model.
Much appreciated!

I'm attempting to source some HT-PLA to see if this would survive unfortunately it's almost impossible to get in my part of the world (UK) but i'll report back if i manage it.

I tried not these exact ones but same thing in PLA and they did not work if using the heated bed they just go soft and no longer hold the glass down. Probably work better printed in something more heat resistant though.

Agreed. I just printed something as well and they didn't last with the heated bed. I guess they would work as long as you don't use heat on the bed.

Printed mine in PET-G but I think the model is a little too slack as they didn't grip my Creality supplied glass bed... Will reprint with some scaling to 90% and see if that makes the difference.

Any luck at 90% with the PET-G?

90% is a little tight, 95% would have been better. PETG's glass transition temp is 88C (190F) so as I tend to have my bed no hotter than 80C I'm hoping it will hold up...

Edited: 90% is way too tight, pings off very quickly. 95% is better but needs to be a decent quality as the coarser quality is very brittle. (NB This is only day 4 of owning the printer...)

Edit 2: nope, PETG softens with the bed at 80C and means that the glass isn't held if you attempt to lever off any prints... back to binder clips...
