This is a customizable model to create holders for different cylindrical type tools such as flashlights. It comes with 4 different preset holders and the ability to create completely custom holders.
This was a real challenge to make in openSCAD. I combined 5 different circular arcs to create the holder shape. Regardless of the size of the opening or the bends, the holder remains smooth.
I’ve provided 4 different STL files — three for different Milwaukee Flashlights, and one for the M12 rotary tool. If you want to create you own custom sized holder and you aren’t sure how to customize an openSCAD model check out this quick guide.
Printer: Prusa i3 MK3
Slicer: Cura Slicer
Material: Inland PET-G
Resolution: 0.2mm with a 0.4mm nozzle
Wall Lines/Perimeters: 3
Infill: Minimum 10% Gyroid. The higher infill percentage the stronger the part.
Notes: You can probably get away without supports, but I’d recommend them for smoother curves on the front of the holders.
All of the holders I’ve provided STL files for have two holes that are spaced 1″ apart. I choose this width so that you could easily mount these holders to pegboard using wall anchors.
