Folding Pocket Saw by CompelTechnic Oct 18, 2011

Description



Modeled in Creo Elements Direct Modeling Express- a relatively new FREE solid modeling program with a LOT of functionality. I'm surprised the community hasn't picked up on it very well yet, as it is quite good- I highly recommend it.

awesome idea! i print asap

bytheway a swissarmyknive-saw can easy be sharpened a few times. you just grind it flat on both sides with a good knivesharpening stone.

the shape of the teeth is made for that purpose... ;)

A (much) shorter beam would also work.

Instructions

Process the .stl through your software of choice and print. I recommend a high fill setting for maximum strength. Sanding and/or reaming may be required depending on your printer's resolution and tuning.

A printed blade could probably work pretty well for drywall work.

When I test in polycarbonate, I'll try printing a sheet of them. This would be so much cheaper than real blades!

But then again, the design was not to address the cost of blades, but their utility in a Swiss Army knife. Regardless of that, however, a holder for these universal blades was a good idea anyway!

AWESOME! I think the printed blade would work with foam core ;)

Actually I might print a blade out of polycarbonate just to see how strong it could be for foam, etc. It could be filed pretty sharp, too.

Pics are high-res.

Really cool, man, that's a nice print! Did it need any sanding for the fits to work properly? Also, how "snappy" does the opening/ closing action feel with the plastic you used?
