Making a Modal Hammer for Tight Spaces

Proto Labs made Stream Lion’s re-engineered modal hammer out of durable nylon materials on an HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D production printer. Stream Lion reports the parts arrived out of the box with precise features that fit the other parts in the assembly properly. Stream Lion image courtesy of Proto Labs Inc.

When the tools for the job proved too cumbersome, this engineer re-engineered his tools and used production-grade 3D printing for the final part.
