Where did they go?…
I’m talking about all the “old school” toys I used to see when I was a kid.
As you know by now I love Lego (and so “help” my Son with his Lego as an excuse to play with it :-P).
Here’s the thing…
There was another toy I played with when I was young – I never owned this toy but my cousin did.
The only way I can describe it is: there were long, plastic strips of ‘track’ that would snap together where you could run small toy cars down it.
It was such an awesome toy because it was so simple and you could make different tracks and do jumps and things with the cars.
I thought, “I’ll get this for my Son”, but…
I couldn’t find it anywhere! I mean, I could find similar toys (i.e. Hot Wheels), but they were really “fancy” and you could only make one track with it.

I have a confession…
I took the liberty of making a few changes to the design in between Part 3 and this part of the tutorial.
But – don’t worry – they are just small changes …I made them during process of taking the 3D design we did in SketchUp and re-drawing it in 2D in LibreCAD. Continue reading…
It’s as easy as clicking ‘Print’…
Because we’ve already done the design, turned it into 3D and exported it to .STL there really is nothing else to do.
We simply open the 3D-Printer software and import the .STL file.
This is probably the part of the entire process that scares people the most – hell, it scared me the most when I started!
If I can go from total-rookie-who’s-even-touched-3d-design-software-before to creating and making The ViperFish …then I’m convinced anyone can do it. Seriously.
Ever wanted to make your own, custom titanium pocket tool?
Well – good news …it’s a LOT easier than you think!
I’m gonna reveal – step by step – how to get the tool YOU always wanted…
Let’s jump right in… you first need to ask yourself questions like these:
What do you want it to do?
How will you use it?
What are the “must have” features?
