About 6 months ago I started working on some homemade constructions using 3d printed jigs - I may have seen a few similar things before but didn't know what they were called. Eventually I found out they were rotegrities or nexorades, so was able to research about them and write an academic article. Eventually that article was rejected.

I don't want to go through that rejection again, so am just self-publishing through this thingiverse link .

Anyway the link has instructions, 3d printable files for some tooling, and a complete referenced blurb including instructions on how to make them. Have Fun!
