Summary

It can be really tricky to screw something together when you don't have enough space to hold the nut with your finger in position. So I added support for a cap on the closed side of the wrench which can be used to hold a nut in position while screwing.

This wrench is a derivate of gr0bs customizable wrench (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:47842).

Also includes some minor enhancements:

  • deeper engraving
  • kerf size tightened
  • lowered text height

It's the Inmoov robot see site
http://inmoov.fr/
I make all of the bolts and nuts for the arms and head so they work well with the printed parts

This is great I use it on my robot's ABS bolts (if it so tight to break wrench then it's too tight for the bolts)
I do have a question what is the $Fs on the text screen for
Thanks again

Thanks, appreciated! Cool application, what kind of robot are you building?
Have a look at the following page regarding the $Fs setting:

This is really cool thanks!
