3D Printed Tool Wristband

NewImage

3D print your own tool wristband via instructables

…i went to work on my computer, drafted some 3D files, 3D printed some prototypes. However, the initial prototype i printed required screws and some assembly. I could have gonne to home depot and bought some screws but why should I? so maybe I could 3D print some screws and glue them in place. But it hit me.. I could 3d model the screws in place and i could 3D print the entire thing all at once.

So i went back to the drawing board and 3d model the whole thing. I also placed each link in a manner that maximizes the way it prints. This method pretty much allows me to print the entire bracelet all at once. The only reason i don’t print the second part of the clasp all at once because i want to print it sideways to increase strength in the direction i wanted.

Materials
You will need a 3d printer or a buddy with a 3D printer
a head gun or blow dryer might work
screw bits.. i had a bunch just laying there
You can download the files here http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:753452
or you can just buy one from me https://www.etsy.com/listing/228631397/multi-tool-wristband
