S-Turbo, the staunch supporter of maker spirit since the year of 1975, has been growing together with DIY enthusiasts by offering good-value tools that continue stoking the development of maker movements around the world.
As we see the trend of 3D printing technology continues bringing inspiring change to almost every industry in our times, S-Turbo is proud to support tools of the trade for 3D printing.
Preparation & Maintenance Tools
Allen Wrenches with a black oxide finish for better rust resistance are usually the first tool we think of when we assemble 3D printers. With the clear marking of sizes on outer cases, handy hex keys in metric or in imperial within reach are always useful. Don’t forget the ball end; it’s especially helpful when reaching tight spaces.
Socket Set is a versatile toolset not only in assembling 3D printers but also applicable in many scenarios of household maintenance. In addition, a Screwdriver Set that includes bits in all shapes, an extension bit holder, and a flexible shaft offers torque and precise access to tight spots all at once!
After taking care of bolts and nuts, let’s move on to tools for snipping and clamping. Side Cutter, or called Flush Cutter is for your clipping needs whenever cutting a filament or small wires for electrical purposes has to be done precisely. For general clamping, our selections include pairs of non-serrated or serrated Long Nose Pliers that fit your palm, are longer with comfort grip, or feature tapered fine tips.
With Plastic Storage Cases S-Turbo supplies, small items such as bolts nuzzle, and wires can be arranged systematically in good order and help you access things you need without being lost in a mess.
There are times when wires, cables, and connectors of 3D printers just don’t connect well. To help a 3D printer run again, a set of practical and easy-to-use Wire Stripping and Crimping Tools will alleviate the stress when wiring.
Finishing Tools for Post-Processing
To reach the desired results for finishes, whether it’s glossy, slick, furry, or weathered, the right tools help facilitate the process. Long Nose Pliers and Craft/Hobby Knives are often used to separate parts and tear supports, while Flush Cutters and Plastic Cutting Pliers are highly efficient in snipping unwanted build-up of resin.
Apart from the Files Set that traditionally shaves and smoothes rough edges and surfaces, with the help of Heat Gun together with Smoothing Tool Kit, unwanted plastic parts can be melted away and plastic material of objects can be detailed by heat.
Octopus Electric Grinder is a must-have tool for bumps and marks removal after tearing down supports. Equipped with Diamond Burrs in various shapes and can be used together with most Abrasive Mounted Points & Polishing Wheels, Octopus Electric Grinder ensures quick removal of nubs in cavities, concaves, and harder-to-reach areas, while at the same time, not mars or removing too many details of printed objects.
