I printed mine, and is tight. I am not sure how much i should scale it up.

Does the tool fit in, and it is just tight to get it to click? When I first printed it, it was a VERY solid click to get in and out. It wore in shortly though, and now it is a bit too loose IMHO. I am thinking of reprinting it in PC to see if it will last longer.

I scaled it up by .04 and it fits perfectly, including the click! I will be posting a make later on, I was actually on my way to design my own case very similar when I found yours. So thanks! and Great design.

Thank you, and glad it worked for you.

May have been a calibration issue in one or both of our printers, unfortunately it is difficult to determine sometimes what causes differences in prints. Might even be the fault of the slicer, are you using a slic3r 1.29? I have found that version tends to produce over size thin walls.

No, i put it in and it got completly stuck about 1inch from the bottom. it was a really tight fit all the way in though.

I think I am going to scale it up .04

Very nice though you should add a U shape at the end of the hook to grab onto your belt.

I considered that, but I didn't want to make it too difficult to take off. The bit at the end of the clip curves in to hold it in place, and for the most part this works well. The clip is quite stiff, so it would be difficult to take off if you had a u-catch at the end (I can't pull it out more than a few mm).

That being said, I have had this design fall off my belt once or twice when I left it on when I was taking off my pants, so I can see the value of your suggestion. Right now the catch at the end is ~45deg, where it might be better to increase that to ~90deg.

Looks really, really nice. A lot like the one Adam Savage made for himself out of aluminum on a tested video. This looks much easier. :)

Thank you, I based it off of a design that was based on that video, so the similarity is not just a coincidence. My only real contribution is the "CLICK!"
