This is a small hand rake for gardening. I like the idea of making useful things on 3D printers, and if you like gardening you’ll probably find this useful. My first print wasn’t great but it proved the idea. I think with more infill it would work great. Try something strong like 70% infill and a few shells it should work great. The part is large (8 inches long) as it was designed for the Ultimaker, but I believe Repraps could do it too? Makerbotters would need to cut and glue for it to work….
