Jig for sharpening skewed chisels (3D printed)

Note that this is for skewed chisels (as used by woodworkers for cleaning out dovetail sockets etc), not skew chisels (as used by woodturners).  Skewed chisels (like these ones) have a single bevel at a steep angle and make it much easier to get into the sides of dovetail sockets than straight chisels do.

I was finding it quite awkward sharpening skewed chisels on the Tormek: mounting them in the square edge jig was awkward and the other jigs just didn't seem to suit this sort of chisel very well.  To solve that, I made a very simple to use 3D printed jig that seems to work really well.  I printed this about a year ago, but I've finally got round to publishing the model so I thought I'd post it here as well in case anyone's interested.
