3D model description

I've created this OpenSCAD, where you can customize your sanding stick. Even the needed screws are printable. You only need some sandpaper (sheet or strip) and the 4 printed parts.

I've also added the four sticks I'm using in the first picture, as .stl files.

Customizable Settings
- set the length, height and width (picture 3)
- 3 different end styles: none, round and wedge (picture 4)
- set the angle and a smooth round end for wedge style

3D printing settings



0.2 or better


You can use lower infill, as long as the infill is present in each layer of the screw. Or you can use separate infill settings for each part e.g. 50% for bottom part and screws, 25% for top part. You can easily separate the part in Simplify3D under Mesh -> Separate Connected Surfaces. You can also separate the parts in the customizer.

I like to create things to save money and time. Wherever possible, I try to use aspects of ecological design. As a full-time software developer and pragmatic solution designer my focus is on the creation of customizable things.
