Summary

Here is a handy handle for your razorblade to make it easier to scrape or pry stubborn prints off your build platform.

Instructions

Print and snap in razorblade. It's a tight fit and snaps securely in place. I recommend filing down the corners of the razorblade, as it helps to keep them from slicing into the kapton on the build platform.

The scraper is intended to be used upsidedown. This way you can scrape at a low angle and pry things up without popping out the razorblade.

Hello, I printed this object with my prusa iv3 and there was no hole to insert the blade. It looks like my layer height may be an issue? Can someone help me figure out what I am doing incorrectly please? Thank you.

Pause the print just before it prints the layer that holds the base of the razor down and insert the razor into the partially-printed part. If you use Marlin firmware, you can use M600 SX to pause the printer, where X is the number of seconds. Insert it into your gcode before printing, just before the layer change to Z=2 mm or so, depending on your layer thickness. Worked perfectly for me.

Thanks so much for this design. This should be in the top 10 best things to print as soon as you get your printer!
I also really appreciate that you posted the OpenSCAD file for customization. Nice work!

Been using this for months and I love it. Its used just about every time I print something. This Plus Wax free dental floss works wonders, lift a edge with this blade so can get the floss under then use a sawing motion with the floss.

Just needed to replace my window sticker for vehicle registration, had a few razor blades but lack strength and dexterity in my hand due to a stroke, so printed this up and got the job done. Thanks for sharing, Emmett!

Great, glad to hear it could be of assistance.

I got several great months of enjoyable use out of mine, thanks. I've now tweaked it a bit and posted as a derivative.

Very tight fit getting the razor blade in to the handle. I don't know if the razor blade is too thick on the part that snaps in or my TOM is off kilter.

Interesting. I will try different layer thickness. Thanks!

It's meant to be pretty tight so it's secure. It'll also vary a bit based on the layer thickness you choose.

I use one of these: http://www.buy.com/pr/product.aspx?sku=217373362http://www.buy.com/pr/product....
