Custom Punchouts: Hinges

A hinge is a tie that is meant to bend rather than separate. Hinges can be used to create 3-dimensional objects .For parts that need to bend or have a hinge, use ties that are 0.07” wide with slits that are 0.5” long and 0.07” wide. Adding more ties will yield a stronger hinge.

For a cleaner look, hinges or bends may be made with a straight line rather than a 0.07” rectangle. However, this will yield a weaker hinge.
