The following files are still off-angle:

Thank you!

I modified the STLs so they can be easily imported into Slic3r PE (which is very unfriendly towards common-sense XYZ orientation):

I can delete this once you upload the STLs in their proper orientation. Cheers

Holy1's 8mm CNC Clamp - Proper Orientation

Is it just me? The clamps aren't aligned to XYZ so it's almost impossible to let it set down on the plate orthogonally without tampering with the settings in 1° steps.

Hi Void68, I've reset the position so it lies on it's side now. That's the best print position anyway. Also most slicers have an option to select a face that rests on the bed. Happy printing and CNC-ing.

Thanks a lot!

Hello Holy1,

again me :), i'm curious if you can make the HOLE M8 version shorter, for example only for one screw, so it ends somehow like on picture attached.

Thank you

The Runt Clamp has been uploaded.

Sure, Can do. Any changes or mods you can think of. I'll be a day or so. (or less)

Thank you, you are the best :), sorry for long time no reply, but can i ask you one more favor ? if you can modify it to only one M8 screw ?, so it can be used at the farrest point of the working place ? Hope i'm clear, if not just ask :)

Ok, So to confirm, take the slot away and just have one 8MM Hole furthest from the work piece?

great design, thanks for that, would be possible to create one for 8mm ? or make some customizer :)

Hi Tomoxm Thank you! It works really well. 8MM Version uploaded. I don't use openscad which I believe is what you need to setup up a customizer. But that would be cool.

thank you :)

3D printing time is relative to layer height, xy speed and model density. I usually print mine at 40mm/sec , .20 mm layer height and 80% infill. I print 1 at a time and it takes about an 1.5 hours. As a rule I rarely print multiple items in case there is machine or filament failure . Nothing worse then being 8 hours into a print and a failure happens, having then to scrap multiple partial prints.
Your slicer cooling setting can also slow a print.
Hope that helps.

How long did it take you to print these? I printed four in one set and it tooks 9+ hours.
