Bed Clips in PLA
January 02, 2014 10:10AM

I've made some clips for holding down the glass. I know there's the photo frame mod, but in the spirit of RepRap I wondered if I could make something with the printer.
They fit fine but I need to see how the PLA stands up to the heat of the bed. So far, after about an hour at 60ºC they seem to be keeping their grip.
I'm going to see how thin I can make the top section - they're currently 2.0mm thick, but I think they will be OK at 1.0mm.

I'll let you know how they work out.

Looks cool. If you could, do a test for ABS printing ABS. That should be fun! smiling smiley
