IKEA Dioder LED bar locking clips

3D model description

Designed for Ultimakers, these clips make it easy to mount 3 bars from the top of your bot (Front, Left and Right). The clips comprise of a top hanger and lower angled clip that allow light to efficiently shine on the build platform just under the moving axis blocks giving the most direct light. Each clip is held together via an M3 10mm bolt and nut (I had lots left over from my UM build) or simply substitute with a 3mm wide zip-tie. The assembled clip hangs from the top of your bot and locks underneath making sure the bar is held securely all the while not marring your bots frame nor requiring your to place adhesives that will fail over time nor drilling additional holes in your body.
