I've been designing a custom lasertag 'King Of The Hill' system for a customer, and decided to try mounting the PCB with 3D printed clips.
It's a pain to put holes for PCB mounts as extra real estate is required, plus all the associated washers, screws etc.
So I designed a 3D PCB mount, which relies upon friction clips to hold the PCB in place. Here, the green PCB is held in place by the angled clips:
And in the real world:
The PCB is held securely and can be fitted or removed with ease.
