Description

Clips for a refrigerator shelf restraint.

I recently moved into a new apartment with a missing bottom shelf restraint. Thanks to MakerBot and OpenSCAD, I can finally replace it!

The hole on the left side is a bit more damaged than the right, so I created 2 different clips.

One fun exercise when creating this thing was modeling an M5 nut in order to remove it from the model later. I recommend everyone try it. :)

Instructions

  • 1. [Optional] Adjust sizes, etc., in OpenSCAD, export to STL
  • 2. Skeinforge the STLs
  • 3. Print!
  • 4. Insert M5 nuts
  • 5. Insert clips into door
  • 6. Attach plexi/plywood/cardboard/what-have-you restraint with M5 bolts.
