For 1/4" Glass, on Flashforge Creator
New version of bracket warrants name change from "Better Clip" to "Best Clip", it is now seriously more robust than original version.
- 100% printed, No screws, bolts, or nuts
- Quick release, for fast glass swaps
- Operates as a single clip, no pieces to fumble with
- Low profile, good clearance if extruder gets close.
The same assembly fits both the back left corner and the front right corner of glass. Made left and right pivot arms depending on which side of the hole you go in.
Pivot arm designed for easy remixing to cover wider range of thicknesses. If someone wants to remix the pivot arm for a different thicknesses, please link to the bracket here and leave comment with what the remixed pivot arm fits.
If given the mm thickness to add or total clearance needed, I may just do it for you in exchange for a "like". :)
The video is on an old version of the clip, it has been improved since this video.
UPDATE: 7-1-15 Made V2 of the pivot arms, which stops them from rotating too far from the needed install position. Even easier to use now.
UPDATE 7-4-15: Updated the bracket and added V3 of the kit, for much greater holding pressure on glass. The clip really locks in place now. Deleted old versions, they didn't hold up like I hoped.
UPDATE 8-15-15 After several weeks of usage, the clips got loose, so I added a tighter pivot arm kit that is slightly tighter. Printed using .2 layer height and 3 shells.
UPDATE 12-14-15: Added source files. the FREE Onshape.com site will open .sldprt files, but not the assemblies.
As usual, NO SUPPORTS. I re-printed the brackets with PLA @ 50% to increase durability. If I have any trouble due to heat, I'll simply reprint these clips with ABS @50%.
NOTICE: for best results, when printing two brackets at the same time, position them at a distance far enough from each other to reduce interference from the non-working extruder.
