Fully assembled 3D printable wrench
by barspin, published
Now, i am not talking about a "print-several-pieces-and-then-assemble" version which there are already a ton of on the internet.
What i wanted to do was something i could print and that would actually be fully working straight out of the printer.
I like to think i came pretty close. All you need to do is to remove the internal support and your done!
Keep in mind this is a proof of concept, i just wanted to see if i could do it.
Updated 2013-10-16: Added "Printable Wrench W Longer Screw" which has a longer "screw" (3mm).
Updated 2013-08-30: I have added two new files. One with a slightly bigger gap between moving parts. This one has 0,55mm gap instead of 0,35mm. Let me know if it works out (in particular with PLA). I have also added a STEP file with no support for anyone who maight want it.

I printed the larger gap model and came out great. It started out like a rusty wrench but after a few minutes of attention it started to glide nice. Very cool design of custom supports. Thanks.

I've tried printing this several times...and the ends keep warping/lifting, which eventually gets hit by the extruders and pops off the build plate...I raised the build plate temp to 114 C, even scaled the object down. I'm using the MakerBot Replicator 2X with Black ABS filament, raft, and different colored supports.
