Great laser cut enclosure trick from Built to Spec.
So to make it easier to assemble some of the enclosures I make I recently experimented with making some clips to hold the things together instead of using the ubiquitous nut and bolt based T-slot construction method used in tons of laser cut assemblies. Some have integrated clipping mechanisms directly into the acrylic of the parts of the assemblies, and I really like that method, but I don’t really trust flexing acrylic to not become damaged easily through normal usage, so I opted to go with Delrin based clips.
