Posted (edited) · Hinge

I'm not an artist, so i do not make pretty things. However i cannot stop looking at the hinge i made for my board game. In a way it is a piece of art, because it functions perfectly and is very easy to put into the board without tools or screws or anything.

The red thing is a hing in theory.

However popping it into the two half boards was impossible. If i made it easyer to pop it in, it came loose too fast.

So i made the hinge out of two parts.

  1. First you place the two parts of the board with their back next to each other.
  2. Then you push the blue part in the holes created for them in the board. That is light pushing cause the blue plastic is thin enough to bend.
  3. Finaly you push the red part in the square of the blue part. You only have to push down and it's not too hard either

Getting it loose from the board is almost impossible without the use of violence.

Sorry for sharing this, but this is why i'm printing 3D.

The flexibility  of the blue part also makes it possible to cast this part. It will come out perfectly, so i am told by the cast-dude.
