3D printed brackets
3D printing isn’t always a good product, but a great prototyping tool.
But sometimes it can save a lot of money and a whole product due to missing replacement parts.
At our facilities, all windows and doors have some alu profiles held on by small plastic clips. These clips are today no longer available and would cost 1500 DKK per 20 pieces, and as we needed over 300 pieces it made a good case for a 3D printer.
The clips are produced 100 parts per print plate and resulting in a print time of 8 hours, then the base plate of the clip was laser cut to speed up production time and make the clips more designed for 3D print.
