I need to scratch my back, but I don't have a tool to do that. I do have a 3D printer. Light bulb!
What you'll need:
- 3D printer (or a print provider you like)
- 1/2" x 15" Wooden Dowel
- Some glue (something that will stick to both the 3D printed material and wood)
I have not built this so the type glue is unknown.
You can find the cad files here:
Step 1: Print the Scratcher End
Print the Scratch end first.
Step 2: Print the Ball End
Print the ball end of the stick. This will give your scratcher a nice finished look, but isn't required for functionality.
Step 3: Attach the Two Ends to Your Dowel
Take the two ends you printed, add a little glue and attach them to either end of your wooden dowel.
Now with two small 3D printed parts you've made a useful tool.
