This is a quick and practical print you will actually use! A small and compact bit-driver that stores 3 extra bits. Fits easily in the pocket and great to bring with your most used bits.

If you want to, you can print multiple versions and colorcode them with different types of bits in each one!

Overview 🔍

The bitdriver is made to use 1/4" (6.35 mm) Hex driver bits. It comes with different versions for you to choose from.

The handle comes in 2 sizes, based on the length of bits it can store:

  • Short - for 25 mm bits
  • Long - for 50 mm bits

The base (bottom of the handle) comes with different screw-types on the bottom:

  • Blank (no icon)
  • Flathead
  • Philips (PH)
  • Pozidrive (PZ)
  • Torx (TX)
  • Hex
  • Square

To print the screw-type and not just a single color base, see instructions below

Multicolor prints 🖌️

This is optional - but looks nice and help you take the right one in first try. You can do like this (in Bambu Studio):

  1. Insert the Base/Handle you want
  2. Right click on the model and click on Split > To parts
  3. In the left pane Process click on Objects
  4. Select individual parts of the base/handle and choose filament for each.

Assembly 🛠️

This one is easy - print a handle and a base and screw them together!

Optional: A magnet with diameter of 5 or 6 mm, can be glued in the handle below the bit. Not necesary, as the fit should be fairly tight.

Print instructions 🖨️

To make these strong enough for practical use, consider stronger-than-average print settings. Suggestions:

  • Walls/perimeters: 3-5 - the more walls, the stronger - so test and see what you find the best.
  • Infill: 20-40% - the more infil, the stronger it will be.
  • Supports: No - the print-in-place hinge prints without supports!

Filament 🧵

I printed these in filament sponsored by FormFutura - and they work great! To be sturdy enough for practical use I used their Tough PLA mostly - and their Easyfill PLA for color organizing. If interested, check out their products here:

- Tough PLA (aff): https://formfutura.com/product/tough-pla/?aff=11

- Easyfil PLA (aff): https://formfutura.com/product/easyfil-pla/?aff=11

welcome :) will you make a model that can hold 6 bits? :)

Replying to @Stanlieri :
That could be an option yeah. Do you think about 6 smaller/shorter bits or 6 long ones? 😊

Nice model, but the tolerances could be a bit more tight to keep the bit from falling out.

Thanks for sharing and for the comment. Maybe a small magnet glued below the bit will improve the functionality 😄 👍🏼

Replying to @GlennovitS3D :
That's exactly what I did. The inside storage doesn't have enough room for magnets, but when closed, the bits don't fall out, so there it's less of a problem. Additional side-effect: the glue I put on the magnet also got onto the side-walls, making the fit more tight ;-)

Fit with bits are a little bit loose, but this will get the job done.

thanks for sharing. Sorry to hear about the fit - have done multiple test versions with different tolerances to hopefully be useful. out of curiosity: which filament did you use? 😊

Replying to @GlennovitS3D :
It’s Bambu Matte PLA. The dark blue you see here I am not the biggest fan of. The print quality with this specific roll (even after drying) is somewhat poor compared other Bambu and favorites like voxel & inland. I can try reprinting in another filament if you’d like.

Oh so unfortunate. I haven't printed too much in Bambu's matte PLA, so haven't got that much experience there 🤷🏼‍♂️ But I actually like the dark blue muted color 😊 If you decide to print in another filament, feel free to post you findings about tolerance/bit-fit 👍🏼
