Buried nuts and hanging holes
I needed to make some M4 nuts that could be finger tightened but I didn't have room for a standard wing-nut, so I decided to embed nuts in a printed plastic knob. I knocked up a simple design in OpenScad :- M4 nuts are nominally 3.2mm thick. I made the base...

Software vs hardware. Hairspray or abs glue might have worked for adhesion to the nut as well.
And, if you really want to automate things, you could print a gripper that attaches to the carriage and picks up the nut.
Or even a bolt that screws down to pick up the nut then drops it in place. So many engineering possibilities.

Thanks for the link!

As written the "fiber reinforced packaging tape" ... "is very forgiving" what do I not notice yet in the packing tape used happening left under tension for more than a week and can still draw (not yet print) with the same quality. Replacing a tape that cost nothing with each new printing object I find fine. Why then people stuck with toothy belts and screw drives that are normal for CNC machines?..  3D printing has nothing to do regarding the forces in the field of CNC, or?.. a 3D printer can be light, like a guitar... and perform amazingly... we shall see. I am objectively posting my findings. I am new and have no preferences except to ease of made and price ;)
