jailcee shared this cool project on Thingiverse!
This is a design inspired by Pentland_Designs’ “Shoelace Locks”. While I like the concept I found their original design to be overly complex and very dependent on tight printer tolerances. This is my take on it.
Use ShoeKlips to easily and quickly secure shoelaces without needing to tie or untie knots. The ShoeKlips clip together easily with one hand and also release easily with one hand. When released the clip will not undo itself all the way but rather stop on a second internal catch. This second catch is sloped so if you do need to completely undo the ShoeKlips you can by wiggling the two sections apart.
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!
