    3D printing is a great way to make things you need to help you make other things. Share with the community the tools and jigs and other items you have printed. Stuff like wrenches, measurement tools, spacers, custom made jigs all used to help you make more stuff.

    Please include what the part is as sometimes we print things that have a very specific use that may only be important to you. How it was printed as well as what materials you used.

    Dont have any pictures at the moment but the last 2 in house projects was a drill holding display with name plate for each size drill (5S is important) and an insert jig that fit over a vice for a manual milling machine to hold 8mm cylinders and machine flats onto them :D

    I am in the process of printing out these parts, while waiting for 624zz bearings, 9 x 100 mm rail with MGN9C bearing block, 12.7 mm dial indicator, 0.5" expanded spring. Everything but the linear rails are coming from Amazon Prime.

    I would be curious to see if anyone can guess what it is used for.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    This was printed in PET-G with 0.14 mm layer height. Center circle is where the dial indicator goes, the rail is mounted to the long rectangular piece and the rail bearing to the back of the main body

    The tool has a name, it is a Tensiometer. All parts printed on the R2.When I am done building it and tweaking it I will release the print files into the public domain.

    this one is inbound. Not sure if it will be on the robo or not. Milling station vacuum pick up tool. Nothing fancy just print, acetone smooth, attach suckers use vac to pick up 12 parts at a time. Could have been done out of PVC but much larger than needed which would require a larger vac system than I have on hand. Screenshot (149).png

    Holder for an alu part that needed a small correction on the CNC. Tight enough so that once screwed to the CNC bed the thing doesn't move one bit.
    Printed in PLA at 0.2mm or so and did the job perfectly.

    Two dual-filament spool holders with bearings, a bolt-gauge for adjusting plastic shrinkage and working on an electronic (compression) spring gauge.

    Heres another set of jigs. Part "magazine" for stainless steel brackets for automated bending. Load em up, come back in 10 minutes, load again repeat. Much better than stacking all day. Will be PLA on the R2/C2 this weekend. no stress on the part so no need for a stronger material. Screenshot (150).png

    I also have a cheap Chinese rework tool that did not have a way to store the hot air nozzles, so I built this one.

    PETG, pretty simple model, easily printed with no supports.

    Nozzles just drop in place, not screwed in, they will not fall out when closed even if turned upside down. Should fit but not tested with Volcano nozzles.
