In a makerspace, particularly an edu-makerspace, organization is critical. Having an obvious place where creators can find the tools they need is key, and perhaps even more importantly - a simple way to RETURN the tools they used... :-)

...makes life much easier for the entire maker community that utilizes the space.

Additionally, for the teacher designing experiences in the makerspace, to be able to visually scan the room to see what's been returned, or to point out where to go to get what's needed, is a feature that needs to be designed for in makerspace organization systems.

Hence, the creation of this Compact Tool Holder for our Ultimaker S3s. Designed to be able to hang right off the side of the printer, it has a spot for our four most used tools with our 3d printing work:

  1. Flush trim micro cutters (specifically, Hakko CHP-170)
  2. Hex screwdriver that came with the printer
  3. Razor scraper for cleaning off the glass bed
  4. The filament clips from the spools currently loaded on the printer (link: )

PVA was used as the support material to help fabricate the arm that snuggly fits on the lip of the printer. I did not test this print with another type of support material, but if you do, please leave a comment so that the rest of this community can benefit from your experience.

Materials and methods

Printed with MatterHackers PRO Series PLA and Ultimaker's PVA.
