Description

I took an idea from a former classmate to create an ergonomic handle that could have multiple heads that could do any gardening project imagineable. I modified an existing pruning hook and cultivator rake stl to fit the handle I designed. The source code from the handle is attached, as well as the base to any new head if someone would like to add to the collection.

Materials and methods

Everything was printed in PLA. The handle and pin were printed with 10% infill, and the two heads were printed with 50% infill.
