Wiring Clamp System #3DPrinting #3DThursday

Fa4e6403f29521eccdd4c07391bd86b2 preview featured

Masterkookus shared this series of 3D printed clamp on Thingiverse!

This is currently a work in progress to create a system of clamps that can be used to solder or assemble wiring/wiring harness.

Currently designed are the clamps, which consist of a four parts, the slides allow the clamp to move when the bolt is is screwed in. The base is how the bolt is secured into the slide, the base comes in two variations, one using M4 hardware to secure it to the slide and M6 for the bolt to tighten the clamp. The second version of the base uses 6-32 hardware to secure it to the slide and 1/4 for the bolt to tighten the clamp. The mounting holes to b attached to a work surface or rail are 1-1/2″ apart.

There are two types of sliders, the base slider goes in first and is thin, this acts as the bottom of the clamp and comes in three wire sizes. the top slide has an indent for the bolt and is what tightens down on the wires it also comes in three sizes.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
