    Nomally closed (NC) tick extracting tweezers for 3D printing

    I have a poodle named Aisha and occasionally she brings home a tick embedded in her skin.

    I always struggle getting it out, so instead of buying some tick-extractor from aliexpress, I decided to make my own design and 3D print it as well.

    Before using the tick picker just ooze a bit of Super Glue onto the tick to kill it. Since ticks breathe through their outer shell, death is quick, and because the cyanoacrylate, readily, sticks to protein, it glues the parts together... making for easy pickin.
