Hints and tips - spring wire clips
August 06, 2020 05:42AM
As this forum has no Hints and Tips section, Tech-Talk seemed the best place to put this - General now seemingly reserved for people with problems with their purchased (non RepRap) printers and Tech-Talk is only read by about three people, but maybe one of you will find it interesting.

Spring wire clips are hardly a new way of holding parts to other parts, but it works amazingly well with 3D printed parts. In the example pictured below the PCB is held into the case with two wire clips and assembles with a satisfying bzzzzip, reminiscent of pulling a zip tie tight. It also holds the PCB with sufficient force for any normal use. Who knew that the serrated surface on 3D printed parts could be a useful feature?
