Open SCAD Tips & Tricks for 3D Printing, CNC and Laser Cutting!

Open SCAD – Micro Vise Project!


Please visit http://OpenSCAD.DIY3DTech.com 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: https://amzn.to/2E4gQsU) 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: https://amzn.to/2SXcIzU ) and the bumper in TPU (see more here: https://amzn.to/2RQsqQ3 ).
