Step 1: Gather your materials and tools!
- your nail clipper for reference
- your 3D printer
- plastic filament
- blue masking tape if your printing bed needs it
- a measuring tool
Step 2: Make your measurements
So my nail clipper is:
- 80mm long
- 15mm wide front and tapers to 12mm in the back, starts tapering at 17mm mark
- 10mm tall front and tapers to 4mm tall back
Step 3: CAD your Sleeve!
This is also the place where you take a close look at your sleeve design and make sure your nail clipper still works properly.
*If you don't already know how to use a CAD program, this is a great exercise to take those little baby steps.
