Work log | 3D printing an under desk cable tidy clip


Earlier this week I printed out a couple of the under-desk cable clips, courtesy of natko from Thingiverse.  Overall the SeeMeCNC Orion Delta printer printed this part very well, at 100% solid, with very little defects.  I still need to mount these on my desk and route the cables properly.  Even with the warmer temperatures out this spring, this part never curled off of the print bed;  That is the magic of blue painter's tape.

With some sanding and filing I can clean the edges even more.
