Living Hinge Test Chips

I’m almost positive this could be improved, but here’s a bare bones starting point for any interested parties. Eight samples, using the inkscape Render > living hinge on a 1x1.5" rectangle. Takes 6"x 6" for the whole test. I’ve never done anything with living hinges and I was never any good at physics so the scatter-shot approach worked great for me. File might be useful one completely unfamiliar materials to get you headed in the right direction. The image is just a screenshot, make sure you download the zipped file. :slight_smile:

If the look came as desired but the bend just won’t quite make it, you can always dampen the wood before bending it.

Hey, thanks! I’ve only ever used one type of living hinge—about time to branch out.
