#2 battery holder with clips.SLDPRT by tsalpha
Ryobi 18V One+ Battery pack adapter. Designed as one half to be printed 2 times and screwed together. Simple spring clips slip into top of each half, after wires have been soldered onto the backs of each clip. They are held in place by the bottom of the second base. Designed for easy assembly. Battery fitment guaranteed, battery was completely reverse engineered and modeled to assure dimensional accuracy. Many other screenshots available, could not upload more than one at this time.

#7 battery holder with clips (same design file, new screenshots) by tsalpha
This is the same design file as submitted earlier, but includes extra screenshot views. I'm doing this to highlight the designs simplicity, and ease of assembly.
This design contains only one unique part. Easily printed, or injection molded for mass production . Contact clips can be spec'ed at any parts supplier, both halves are quickly fastened together with two screws on each side. This also give complete access to the inside for wiring. Unlike other designs, the battery is a 100% digitally accurate model of the Ryobi 18V + One, ensuring proper fit and contact with the contact clips.

Hi, Thanks for your update. you are on my top pick now. Just to confirm. I can take your file send it to 3D printing shop and when I get it, the batteries will fit right in, no binding, sticking, etc? (not to mention plastic molding shops, etc)? if so problems, I expect free update.
Also, not quite sure, but the access port if i'm not mistaken is on the corner, can that be moved to the short side of the pack? meaning whatever I am planning on will be sticking out of the short side so that the pack can be layed down almost any (larger) side without interference.
The spring clips I assume you also spec'd the correct size I can get commercially available without worry for retrofit or modifications?

I submitted a second file for you. Nothing changed design wise, but I included more pictures to show internal features. Guess I should have done this to start with. I was concerned about being copied, looks like that would have happened anyway. My own fault for not wanting to divulge an secrets about my design.

I can't stress enough, the accuracy of the Ryobi battery. If this isn't accurate, nothing will fit or line up correctly. I will guarantee your 100% satisfaction with my design. Changes or modifications per your request are always welcomed.
