Welcome to our very first Objet Video blog! As there's been a lot of talk about printing wrenches recently I decided to do just that. This video shows the incredible accuracy and verstatility of the Objet Connex 500 3D printer in producing a full range of adjustable wrenches ranging in length from just 5cm to a giant 49cm (2" to 19.5"). All 6 wrenches, with their movable parts, were printed on the same print tray at the same time – with no assembly required! The wrenches are made of Objet's new ABS-like digital material – a composite material that's tough enough to simulate real ABS-grade engineering plastics in this, and many other functional prototyping applications. Enjoy!
