Introduction: 3d Printable Multi Tool

This is a 3d printed multi tool. Not only does this include wrenches and a ruler it includes a retractable knife, a USB drive, and possible a thermometer. I use this almost everyday, whenever I open a box, need to cut something, or need to tighten so screws.

Printing the Parts

  • Download the STL files like in the previous step
  • Set up the proper setting
  • You can find them at this link
  • Make sure you have a properly calibrated print bed
  • You also need very good bed adhesion
  • If you want it to also be a thermometer, use thermo-sensitive filament
  • Once it is printed, remove it carefully from the bed
  • You can then sand it as you wish

Step 4: How to Add the Box Cutter Blade?

Adding the box cutter blade

  • You need to be very careful
  • Slide the blade in where it would come out without cutting yourself
  • It will get caught when you get to the first notch
  • Pull up the locking mechanism and continue sliding
  • Slide until the blade is fully covered and locked in
  • BE CAREFUL it is a sharp knife, use at your own risk

Step 5: How to Insert the USB Component?

Inserting the USB Component

  • Sand off the outside of plastic
  • Make it as smooth as possible
  • Put a drop of glue on the back edge of it
