Of course metal tools are useful but if you don't want to risk scratching your newly printed treasure, this set of support extraction tools should come in useful. The handles are based on the Swann Norton Acrylic scalpel handle, which fits nicely in the hand and allows plenty of leverage. Take a close look and you'll get an idea of the limits of my design skills. hopefully, over time I'll find other designs and add them to the set. Of course, I'm open to any suggestions you may have.

EldRick, open this in Net fab. You can rotate it however you wish.

Still the same issue - no straight-line surface. It needs to have the "top" edge of the handle flat, and continue into the wedge part of the tool. Printed supports would mangle it beyond usefulness.

These are basically unprintable on any FDM printer, as they are at an odd angle, and have no way to put a flat side down (and if they did, the tools should be aligned with the flat, not pointing out at an odd angle in mid-air).

Hey EldRick. Thanks for the feedback. Just uploaded a reorientated "Standard Wedge". Let me know if that's better. Cheerz! Rootz
