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.

Step 3: How to Print the Parts?
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
