NOTE: updated version, use the V2 body, the original version is still available.
This is a flat mouse trap that I designed and modeled. The only additional components required is a strong rubber band, and 4 screws (about 3 mm in diameter) to hold the trap to any type of container/wall (one screw is also used as a pivot for the trigger).
I printed the trap using Cura, at 0.16mm layer height, and 60mm/s, 100% infill (since it is so small it doesn’t take that much filament), and using PLA.
I printed the body upright with a reasonably large brim (10mm) to prevent it from getting knocked over.
I do not know if the trap will catch a mouse or not since I don’t have any mice to catch, that is why I am uploading it here for you all to try it out.
Suggestions are appreciated.
I have chosen not to allow this to be modified or used commercially.
Guillotine requires edges to be cleaned/rounded off
If printed with a brim the edges of the guillotine will need to be rounded off in order to fit properly.
