Designed for quick / easy removal of printed parts from the makerbot print tray!

The tools that they (makerbot) provide are frankly not good enough. The squeegee thing just..doesn't work! I have more than once had to re-align my printer due to excess force required to break free the parts. This tool is modeled after a chisel or putty knife. The "hammer" is designed to give apply slight directly force exactly where it's needed.


Please print scaled 1.5x
I would recommend sanding the chisel tip
Added the chisel tool as stand-alone download. Please don't hold me responsible if you use your metal hammer and break anything!

100% Infill for everything.
.27 layer height
55 feed rate

110 heated bed temp
220 extruder head temp

AFter re-assembling the hammer/head multiple times it completely split the hammer down the middle. I will be updating the file to reduce the overall size of the join to allow for "tolerance stack" on the excess side of the printer (cause.)

Fixed Head Uploaded
Removed material from around thejoin cut-out which will prevent the hammer-handle from spreading the joint and splitting.
