Failing to print…

Sometimes, it doesn’t go according to plan.

So this was the plan. I saw in a catalog a widget that would let you clip your tape measure to a corner so you can easily check square. “I could make that.” And so I tried.

It kind of worked, but not as well as I wanted.

This was my first attempt at a print in place assembly, where the swivel clip sat inside the main body, but was supposed to have enough margin that they would print as two disconnected bodies. If you look closely, it didn’t work. I tried loosening it up with a knife, and if it still doesn’t work I’ll have to do an autopsy on it.

Continual learning, right?
