Last day of christmas holiday. I was thinking about going over material borders. Due to the still quite slow printing speed and expensive 3D-printing-material it defintily makes sense to reduce 3D-printing on connecting parts of for example a bigger structure. this is why i’m currently working on the connection to textile components. On the other 2 pictures you can see an attempt to print extreme thin and lightweight with an additional aluminiumlayer.
yesterday i found some time to develope this small clamp. currently it doesn’t hold anything except it self but at least it works and fits properly. the metalparts are just a normal M5 screw and bolt with an additional 3d-printed key. if you tighten the hexagonal key its impossible to remove the screw from the edding. no use for it, but very impressed that it works…

-The „.iges“ File in Slic3er
