Summary

This sweet ice scraper is my response to the insane amounts of snow and ice here in the northeast United States. Print it at any scale to fit your hand perfectly. As sized, it will fit easily in a glove box.

It comes in five parts: blade, backstrap, handle (in two halves), and cover (to lock the front together). I've included a semi-transparent render to show how it is assembled. I've also added 3.5mm holes in the handle. You can use these holes for plastic or metal slugs to assemble the handle (though they aren't required).

I've also added in photos of the partially assembled and fully assembled parts!

Instructions

  1. First, print the two halves of the handle. Assemble the handle by using metal or plastic slugs for alignment in the 3.5mm holes. Glue the halves together.

  2. Print the blade. Lock the blade onto the tongue using the printed pegs on the handle. I recommend gluing this part with a fast action glue.

  3. Print the backstrap. This is pressed into the handle and will lock the inner pins into place.

  4. Print the blade cover. This covers the mounting pins on the tongue and can be glued permanently into place. You may want to shave, sand, or adjust the cover as is appropriate for your printer and materials. It should be a tight fit.

If modified, this would probably be great for scraping prints off the bed of a 3D printer, but I'm sure I'd find use in the intended purpose if I wasn't in Arizona.
