We’ve seen a couple of 3D-printed clamps so far, but this is the one that immediately leapt out at us as being potentially useful. First of all, it went together extremely easily, and feels solid. There’s one handle to turn, which is geared to two screws pushing the vice together, so you get even pressure across the whole thing. The nature of 3D-printed plastic means that it’s nowhere near strong enough for metal or woodwork, but for holding PCBs securely for surface mount components, it’s perfect.
