Animals raised on a farm or harvested from the field need to be field dressed and skinned in order to obtain quality, unspoiled meat. This process is often interrupted due to a dull cutting blade that is not sized properly for the task. The OSAT cutting tool allows the user to cut only what is needed in a safe manner. This is accomplished by mounting a replaceable utility blade on a 3D printed handle with a guard. This design allows the user to cut just underneath the skin without puncturing organs.

OSAT Field Dressing Tool[edit | edit source]

Project developed by User:zedubiel


Abstract[edit | edit source]

Animals raised on a farm or harvested from the field need to be field dressed and skinned in order to obtain quality, unspoiled meat. This process is often interrupted due to dull cutting blades that are not sized properly for the task. The OSAT field dressing tool allows the user to cut only what is needed in a safe manner. This is accomplished by mounting a replaceable utility blade on a 3D printed handle with a guard. This design allows the user to cut just underneath the skin without puncturing organs. Allowing the user to replace the blade ensures the tool is replaceable and easy to use time after time. So with this tool the user can field dress an animal quicker and safer than with a traditional blade.

Bill of Materials[edit | edit source]

Utility blades can be ordered in bulk for little cost. TEKTON supplies 100 utility blades for $9.26. This is available here

The STL file for the part and openSCAD file can be found here:

Tools needed for fabrication of the OSAT[edit | edit source]

  1. MOST Delta RepRap or similar RepRap 3-D printer
  2. Utility blades

Skills and Knowledge Necessary to Make the OSAT[edit | edit source]

Technical Specifications and Assembly Instructions[edit | edit source]

  1. The part takes about 30 minutes to print.
  2. Once printed simply snap the utility blade into place as seen in the pictures.


Common Problems and Solutions[edit | edit source]

  • If needed the blade can be heated and pressed into the handle. If this is not possible the part may need to be scaled larger or smaller and reprinted.

Cost savings[edit | edit source]

  • A commercial equivalent to this cutting tool is available here for $12.61.
  1. Blades are about 12 cents a piece if ordered in bulk.
  2. About 4.5 meters of filament are needed to produce this part. This equates to about 50 cents.
  3. Savings for this part are about 79 percent.
