No idea how these aren't the #1 filament clips on Thingiverse. 1.75 "ribbed" ones are fantastic. Thanks for posting!

Thanks for your kind words, happy to have helped!

Awesome. Exactly what I needed. Used 1.75mm ribbed printed in PLA

The 1.75 worked great for me. The best filament clip I have printed so far.

Cool! Which version did you print?

Any chance of one with a slightly longer and with a deeper channel? These are almost perfect, and I love their size, but I miss the depth from the YAFC you remixed from -- they pop off frequently or don't tighten as well as I'd like.

Uploaded a new version with longer and higher channel. Also made a ribbed version. That one works extremely well.
You may also consider printing it a few percent smaller. Some filament is 3mm, some is 2,85 and some even smaller... Might just make a difference there as well.

I'm not particularly happy with how they look now (see Makes). It could use some optimization to still look nice and clean but work better than V1... Maybe I'll do another overhaul later on, but for now, this is it ;)

Oh these look great! The ribbing is a great idea -- I haven't seen anyone do that. I haven't printed yet but spitballing: For a future version, maybe a zig-zag (in Z axis) rib would work well too -- maybe easier to push in and out and not wear down as fast.

That would be a bit harder rib shape to create though, but maybe I'll get to that some day ;)

I have the same problems myself. I'll look into it tomorrow!

1.75 version works great for me. Thanks. This is the best clip I've used.

Good to hear, thanks for the follow-up!
