OpenForge is now a patron supported project. I use the resources that my patrons give me in order to get the resources to let me create more sophisticated tiles with a greater level of detail. Please, support me, and I’ll deliver an ongoing stream of awesome gaming terrain. You can find more about OpenForge and Masterwork Tools at our:
- Roll of 20 gauge copper wire, cut to 2 1 1/2 inch lengths
- Printed clip
- Wire cutters (or some other way to cut the wire)
- Needle nose pliers (or some other way to bend the wire)
- Pin Vice (optional)
Bend the tops of the wires to make contact terminals
Use the pin vice to clear out any extra plastic that printed inside the wire holes in the clip. If you don't have a pin vice, you can cut a 3 inch piece of wire, bend it to create a handle, and then use the wire cutters to cut some sharp edges into the tip of the wire and use that as a drill. It takes a little longer, but I've tested and it does work.
Put the pins through the clip. Make sure that the contacts extend slightly past the tips of the clip.
bend the wires on the other side of the wires past the end of the clip so you can create contacts on the other side
Use your needle nose pliers to bend the wires back, clip with the wire cutters, and then squeeze them tight with the pliers
