Introduction: CNC Clamps 2mm (0.08 Inch) to 18mm (0.7 Inch)
Clamps for holding down your workpiece on a cnc router. The
clamps are designed for holding down materials with a thickness of 2mm to 18 mm.
I designed the clamp using Fusion 360.
There are 4 different sizes for the bolt that goes through, M5, M6 or 1/4 inch and for a special request M8 (The M8 version is not tested but should work though the sliding distance is a lot shorter).
Best is to use a washer on top.
The actual foot to hold your workpiece can rotate to adjust to the thickness of your material.
This clamp can be used on a wasteboard like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhVW6Q9o-34 or on v-slots with an added drop in t-nut.
1 bolt per clamp M5, M6 or 1/4 inch also the lenght is depending on your wasteboard.
1 washer per clamp
In case of v-slots 1 drop in t-nut per clamp
Step 1: Printing the Clamp
Print the clamp on its side. Do not use support !!
Print with PETG
Use 0.15mm resolution.
Use 4 Perimeters for strenght.
Make sure your printer is setup well. The foot of the clamp can rotate and there is not much clearence between the parts.
Step 2: You Are Ready to Clamp Down Some Materials.
Have fun making !!
