X-ACTO Knife Handle and Locking Cap #3DThursday #3DPrinting


SolidDorks shares:

This design is meant to solve the faults with the standard design:

The standard cap is a friction-fit device when protecting the blade. Boo. Comes apart all the time, leaving your blade exposed and the whole locker room laughing at you, how embarrassing.
The cap is easily lost since there’s no place to put it while working.
The standard #11 blade is upswept on the cutting edge and parallel with the handle on the back edge. This is very annoying if you want to spin the knife to expand a hole. Instead, the blade triangle should be centered. This gentle sweep angle retains cutting stability while being much easier to drill with.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
