3D model description

This is a fully functioning spring loaded cabinet latch appropriate for standard kitchen cabinet size doors and smaller. I used it on a BBQ cabinet along with the Steam Punk Hinge https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/various/steam-punk-hinge . The springy bit is the flexing 1/2 circle seen about mid-way; it is long lasting. For a finish I mixed acetone with copper powder and painted it on with a small brush. Once dry high gloss polishing with a brass dremel brush or softer tools is possible.


3D printing settings

Printed in ABS at .3 mm resolution. Finish coated with acetone mixed with copper powder and then polished with dremel tools. Uses #6 screws to fasten or if scaled to 80% it will use #4 screws. With the copper powder I anticipate it will change colour and go green with humidity which is the desired effect. Or just paint it. Copper powder is on ebay.
