3D model description

This is a straightforward remix of barspin's (aka Daniel Norée) famous 3d printable wrench, with as main goal making it less frustrating to print and get working. Things I changed in this remix:
* The supports have a smaller contact area with the model at their undersides, and have larger clearances at their sides. The supports from the original model are very difficult to remove for no good reason, because they hug the model both at their top and underside. There is no reason to place the underside of the supports so close to the model, it only helps to get a nice finish on the supports themselves, which will be destroyed anyway.
* I hollowed out the lower parts of the supports, so your printer doesn't spend time and filament on those parts if you print the wrench with a high infill.
* The ridges on the jaw that match the wheel, are slanted because the ridges on the wheel are also slanted. This makes the wheel easier to turn and reduces the risk that these parts get fused during printing.
* The tolerance on the wheel has been increased slightly so it will turn more easily.
* I added 0.2 mm to the underside of the model, to allow to make the wheel more complete. I used the extra 0.2 mm to add a tiny raft. This makes the wheel easier to print and reduces the risk that the small ridges get knocked over during printing of the first few layers. You will need to carefully carve this raft with a sharp knife to get a nice round shape on the entire wheel.

I also provide a version of the wrench with the text removed, and you can use Customizer to add your own text. If you want to add text to the dual extrusion print, set ‘Dualstrusion’ to yes, and combine the model with the More_Printable_Wrench-dual-inserts.stl file in your slicer.
