NOTE the status is: Probably it works, but i dont feel like testing or
developing it further. If you try it please provide feedback for others.
dry_ are more likely to work than
If i develop it further, i will likely start from scratch.
Clamps inspired on thingiverse user KidCrazy’s
‘KCS’ clamp. Untested. Intended improvements are:
- Made it parametric.
- Guides to center it.
- Holes to glue some filament on in order to hold a regular spring instead of a
- (optional, parametric)Gap behind the teeth improves hold on clothing.
Print it, the
_set.stl files contains a pair with the plastic spring,
Then put the parts together, it will resist a bit halfway due to the guide.
Going in diagnonally seems to work better.
If you use the plastuc spring, just put it in. Note that plastic is subject to
creep when under constant tension.
For regular springs there are probably multiple good strategies.
* use metal wires and twisting them up, the spring then goes over the metal wires.
fuse bits of filament with the hot end, this was my initial plan
but it didnt work well for me.
You could probably also just tie it with wire but i am not so sure how well
Risk using nothing. Spring has friction with the plastic. There are also cones
where the spring can go.
- Springs are not properly parametric(actually left out the
it didnt work well)
- Assembly could be easier. (That might mean just turning the guides off)
- Parameters based on what the user want, and that dont require fiddling to get
- When the distance between the prongs is small relative to the length the
handles collide, increasing their distance would help.
- More defaults.

As usual development versions on github.
