An easy to use "Swiss-Army" like organizer for keys!
Tired of your keys being a big sharp ball of metal? Tired of your keys making a bunch of noise as you walk around? The BladeKey key organizer solves those problems by keeping your keys in order. Your keys are held in with a single zip-tie and rotate out like a Swiss-Army knife as shown in the picture.
Relies on http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:8812 (Also Included In the Files Below)
I have provided an example STL, but you should generate one to fit your keys.

Measure Your Keys - http://youtu.be/ud4xJrZtB-M
1) Obtain a Caliper or a Ruler (2D Printable PDF Ruler: http://bit.ly/vq3y0).
2) Measure the width of all the keys you want to organize stacked together (mm).
3) Measure the length of your longest key (mm).
If You Do Not Have a 3D Printer, You Can Buy a BladeKey:
1) Select the right size at http://www.shapeways.com/shops/bladekey. If the right size is not there already, let me know.
** If You Have a 3D Printer, You Can Print a BladeKey:
1) Plug the Length and Width values into the OpenSCAD file.
2) 3D Print the resulting STL file.
3) Make sure the zip-tie holes are clear.

Assembling Your BladeKey - http://youtu.be/J8iN-M1FWM4

---The 'tail' of the zip-tie should go towards the end of the device with the loop for the key ring.
