Open SCAD – Micro Vise Project!


Please visit for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode we will be creating a copy of a nifty micro-vise (see vise here: from Amazon we picked up and decided to design our own 3D printable version of this in Open-SCAD!

To build this you will need some extra parts (hardware) and I have made a small list below. In addition you will also need a 1/4-20 bolt about 3 inches long and a matching nut to your tastes. I printed the jaws in PLA (see more here: ) and the bumper in TPU (see more here: ).
