I liked the original but the little handle was always too small for my Fat Fingers so I bulked up the handle.


Print it, love it, but please post a photo of it after you print it!

Plates are HERE! I choose to exclude the key because that way you can print the key with 50% infill so it doesn't twist apart. The plates I've had very good luck printing them at 10% infill without a raft or support.

After tweaking my printer I've found that printing the pins with 1 shell and 5% infill makes them better for inserting.

I've added a new version of the pins which is slightly thinner. I've not yet printed them but hopefully they will help with assembly if you are having issues with the pins being too tight.

Found the pins a bit tight, reprinted them at 90% X and Z, 100% Y (so still normal length, just a bit thinner) and they worked like a charm. 2 shells 100% infill due to small size.

I just uploaded a new version of the pins which are slightly thinner. Hopefully they will be of use if anyone else prints this thing out.

I've found that if I print the pins with 5% infill with 1 extra shell they come out slightly smaller that if I print them with 0 extra shells. It's weird but I eventually get them to fit fine.
