Clamps are an essential tool in building just about anything from scratch. This OSAT is intended to take the place of woodworking clamps. The source code is parametric, the size of the clamp is limited only by the size of the 3D printer.

Bill of Materials[edit | edit source]

  1. Only filament is required to build this OSAT
  2. Here are the STL files
    1. [1]
    2. [2]
    3. [3]

Tools needed[edit | edit source]

  1. MOST Delta RepRap or similar RepRap 3-D printer
  2. OpenSCAD Parametric modeling software http://www.openscad.org
  3. Download the ISO Metric Thread SCAD file from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:311031. Inlcude this in the same folder as the main SCAD File
  4. Download this handscrew SCAD model.[ https://www.appropedia.org/File:Woodworking_Clamp.scad]
