Numerous projects, both industrial and hobbyist, require specialized battery holders. These battery holders allow your project to be powered and are highly necessary, but they also usually have shape and weight requirements that can be pretty tricky to design.
Creating a Custom 3D Printed Battery Holder
A 3D printed battery holder is one of the best ways to create a custom battery holder for your project. 3D printing offers a wide range of material options. The sky’s the limit when creating a custom 3D printed battery holder when it comes to design.
Designing a Custom CAD File for a Battery Holder
3D printing is based entirely on a 3D CAD file. This carefully designed computer file provides the 3D printer the instructions to create your custom battery holder layer by layer. A well-designed CAD file is key to successfully 3D printing a product.
Most 3D printers people are familiar with build products up layer by layer, though other work by sintering layers of powder together. Many materials can be 3D printed, from various plastics to metal, with more being designed and adapted to the process every year.
Various Materials Needed For Your 3D Printed Project
With 3D printing, you can design the perfect 3D printed battery holder for your project. Whether you need a simple, small AA battery holder or an 18v battery holder, you can create the right kind for you. The numerous materials available allow you to ensure that the weight is just right. At the same time, the freedom of design means you can ensure that the battery holder has just the proper ergonomics. For small projects that require a 18650 battery holder, this is an excellent option because the shape may be unusual and needs an exact design for its battery holder.
