  • A set of smaller metric hex keys down to 1.5 mm
  • Screwdrivers – small cross head and flat-bladed.
  • A try square or an engineer’s square
  • Side cutters – a sharp pair of sidecutters will help in cleaning up any extra pieces on the 3D prints
  • Wood chisels – the PETG prints can be worked using similar techniques to wood so if a fit needs a small adjustment, for example, we find that is the best way
  • Pin chuck or drill suitable for small drill sizes.
  • Twist drills. A set including 1.6 mm, 2 mm and 3 mm
