Summary

The PolyTool features 6 different sides to put different tools on. (Hence the name; PolyTool) (Scroll Down for instructions.) If you do not want to assemble it you can print an already made PolyTool. The middle part of the PolyTool has been cleared so you can put it on a keychain, or anything else you want. You can also put your finger through it for easier use. Since the PolyTool doesn't have flip out tools, (like other hand tools) it makes it easier to find the right tool, and helps you save lots of time. The PolyTool is just under 2.5 inches in diameter, although you can change the size to your preference.

I hope you enjoy! Feel free to ask any questions, I'll try my best to answer them! : )

How I Designed This

Here is my step by step process on how I build PolyTool:

  1. Made polygon shape
  2. Made center hole
  3. Rounded edges slightly
  4. Made tools (wrench, allen wrench, etc)
  5. Connected everything together
  6. Done : )

Making the polygon.

Extruding the polygon.

Making a smaller polygon. (For the hole in the middle)

Extruded down. (Making hole)

Custom Section

PolyTool: An easy to use/ and make handheld tool

My Objective:
The main reason I made PolyTool was because I wanted an organized, easy to access, simple multi tool.

Instructions:
Before starting please gather these materials:

  • Hot glue (Some kind of adhesive)
  • Pencil or pen
  1. Print blank PolyTool template.
  2. Print tools you would like to have on your PolyTool.
  3. (Optional) Using a pencil or pen, mark where you would like to place your tools on the PolyTool.
  4. Put a dab of hot glue, or any other adhesive you have where you marked it.
  5. Gently place your tools onto the glue. (Be careful)
  6. Set somewhere safe and wait until completely dry.
  7. Enjoy!

Disclaimer: If you just want you can get the tool already made.
