If you're like me, constantly switching between different screw bits in your DeWalt drill, you've probably encountered the challenge of keeping them organized. DeWalt includes a metal belt hanger in their drill packages, but it can be more of a hindrance than a help. However, there's a solution - crafting a custom bit holder that's not only practical but visually blends with the drill.


Design Objectives:

  1. Integration: The bit holder should seamlessly merge with the drill's appearance, giving it a factory-fitted look.

  2. Ease of Fabrication: The design should be simple enough for anyone to replicate, utilizing 3D printing with readily available materials.

  3. Functionality: The holder must securely accommodate multiple standard-sized screw bits, making them easily accessible during your work.

Creating the 3D Model:

  1. Starting Point: Begin by identifying the attachment point on the drill where the holder will connect. Ensure it snugly fits the drill's mount.

  2. Bit Compatibility: Consider the standard size of screw bits and design the holder to accommodate them comfortably.

  3. Printability: Strive to create a 3D model that can be printed without supports by standing it on one end...

Design Considerations:

  • Material Choice: The design aims to work seamlessly with PLA, a commonly used 3D printing material.

  • Tolerance Consideration: Account for variations in 3D printer tolerances by incorporating features like a slit and a nub to provide a secure fit without excessive tightness.

Installation Process:

  • The holder can be attached using the supplied screw that came with the drill. If you don't have that a standard M3 x 10 screw can be used instead.
