It's a pocket multi-tool
It's a Hex Bit Driver
It's a Bottle Opener (for beverage of choice when project is done)

I wanted to create something useful to keep in your pocket.

4 Hex Bit Slots (1/4")
Bottle Opener (Optional Reinforced Bottle-opener mode w/ metal bits)
Pocket-Safe Bit Storage
Dimensions: 2.3" x 2" x 0.4" w/o bits

Bits: (print your own)

1 Phillips

00 Phillips

4 Flat head

2.5 Flat head

3/16" Flat head
T15 Torx
1/8" Hex Driver

or insert your own metal ones

Next up-- design your own unique screws and bits


Use your own metal bits or print your own bits (which are conveniently non-conductive and lightweight)

Insert bits backwards for pocket-safe travel

Use flat head metal bits for reinforced bottle opener

Printed this today. None of the hex bits fit in the holes, metal bits don't fit in the holes, and most of the bits didn't even print out correctly

Nice - all the tools I actually need in a compact lightweight tool. I like it.

Good idea! look for reversible bit storage in a moment

I've used plastic screwdrivers for various static sensitive activities-- it will be fun to see how well it works and what is needed to improved it.

ABS would not be a good plastic for static sensitive work as our filaments have no conductive additives as tools for static sensitive work do.

Nice idea, but do you really think you can get a working bit out of plastic? Even the cheaper metal bits usually break or wear out way to fast...
Same goes for the bottle opener. I think it will break before you have your beer open. (There is a good reason the other printed bottle opener "abuses" a coin to lift the cap.)

And if you want to take that tool in your pocket, it would be nice if you had some kind of slots to store the bits in, so they don't make holes in your pocket or even your leg.
