3D model description

There are plenty of DIY Dremel-style rotary tool ideas available on the internet but I couldn’t find anything that was powerful enough or usable in the long term, while looking good! So I decided to design and make my own 3d Printed Dremel-style rotary tool.

Though I had recently purchased a professional 160W rotary tool, but I now mostly use my own rotary tool as it is compact, light, yet powerful enough for 90% of the things I have to do and much lower noise.

Safety Warning: Power tools should be handled carefully with the appropriate safety equipment. Safety Equipment, especially face mask, will also be required during this build as it involves sanding and painting the parts. I cannot be held responsible for any injuries, damages or losses caused during this build or by the rotary tool. Go ahead at your own risk :)

Note: Economically, this project is feasible if you have your own 3d printer.

3D printing settings

I got it 3d printed in PLA at 200 microns through a 3d printing service.
