Clothes peg - Clothespin

The plastic part of the clothes pegs tends to break or disassemble after a while. The spring, however, remains functional. Don't throw away your clothespins anymore, rebuild them. I propose this structure that allows you to reuse the spring to rebuild a new clothespin. I have performed several tests, the result depends on the quality of the printing and the filament. I used an Alfawise U20 to print it, but of course you can print it with the PLA, the printer, and the software you want and master. You can print it in layer height 0.2 or 0.1. I used: - a layer height in 0.2 ; - a 20% filling, in cubic form; - a nozzle temperature of 205°, and without a heating plate; - no support. The file represents a half clip (symmetrical). So it takes two to make a pair of pliers. For 2 clips (4 files) it took me: 14g and 4.73m of filament, or about 0.31 EUR. About half an hour per clip. - Clothespin The plastic part of the clothes pegs tends, after a while, break or dislodge itslef. The spring however remains functional.

I used : a layer height of 0.2; a 20% filling, in cubic form; a nozzle temperature of 205 °, and without a heating plate; - no support. The 3D file represents a half-clothespin (symmetrical). So you need 2 to make a full clothespin. For 2 clothespin (4 files) it took me: 14 g and 4.73 m of filament, about 0.31 EUR. About half an hour per clothespin.
