I always wanted a specific tool holder that didn't require drilling holes into my printer. So I thought, what better way to start learning 3D design then to design my own.

So thats what I did.

Neatly designed in Tinkercad.

What you get: (Or at least what it was designed for)
  • 2 holes for common hex keys
  • 1 hole for X-Acto or other precision knife
  • 1 hole for calipers or scissors
  • 2 Slots for tweezers
  • +1 Awesome


  1. Print
  2. Attach to desired location*
  3. Insert desired tools
  4. ????
  5. Profit

*If the tool holder is too loose where placed, apply a peace of paper or tape to the desired location then reattach tool holder.

Thanks for sharing this tool holder. I scaled it to 120% and it fits the edges of my Ultimaker perfectly.

Awesome Print! What settings, software, size filament etc, did you use??

Thanks. For the prints seen in the picture I used ReplicatorG 28 with Skinforage (35) and the default PoM settings. Printed on a Thing-O-Matic with HBP and Mk7 stepstruder. The filament used was 1.75mm. The color of the internal LED strips are soft white. 8-)

I strongly suggest not to store the knife with the blade pointing up like that.

I normally keep a cap on it. I took it off for photo purposes.

I like the holder. Also like the accuracy of the print. Clean Print. Nice pic.

Nice photo! How did you do that desaturation?

Thanks! I did it in Photoshop CS5.1. I just masked off the area I wanted to keep and desaturated the rest. A pen tablet made it easy. :-D
