3D Printed Tool Wristband

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
