3D Printed Stick Clip

I hope this is the right place for this...

A coworker recently bought a 3d printer and offered to run some jobs for me.  I have never modeled anything for 3d printing before and thought a stick clip head might be a nice first project.  I modeled the part in Fusion360 based on the design of the Trango Beta Stick.  I added a female screw that fit an extendable pole I already had for changing light bulbs.  I designed the part as two pieces that are glued together to allow it to be printed without any support material.

Pretty stoked at how it turned out and wanted to brag to the internet.  I can post STLs if anyone is interested.

I also have some videos of it working, but since it works exactly the same way as the beta stick I figured they weren't really necessary to post.

Cool project, I'm sure I could look it up, but is there anyway to unclip a draw, or clip a rope into an already hanging draw with this stickclip?  Just looking at it I can't think of how you would do either of those tasks.

Yeah, using the velcro strap (only shown in one of the pictures) you can "rodeo clip" a prehung draw (starts at 3:08).

I don't think it can be used to take down a draw that's already up.

What is this "trad gear" you speak of?

I'm actually printing a cam next!  I'll send it to you to test whip on if you want.

That's not the way this works. You offer to fight Burchy. The loser whips.

Enough of this internet chest bumpin', let's get busy.


(Cool stick, btw.)
