9/16 in. wrench by ow3n Jul 7, 2012


This is a 9/16 in. wrench made in Sketchup and printed with a MakerBot Replicator. I laser-engraved the surface after printing and gave it to my dad. Couldn't think of a thing that we had passed back and forth more times than this.

Did you try to use it? Or is it purely decorative?

Try Slic3r or Cura. Cura especially is very good at support material.

I noticed that too. I can update it here or link to yours. Email here: http://owenmundy.com/site/cont...

Any chance you could post the Sketchup file for this?

Here you go. I found the original in the wild and edited it in Sketchup to be able to print it.

I tried printing this, but after it lays down a few layers of the open ended side of the wrench it then tries printing the rest. Problem is that the rest is up a few layers and it just prints that in air, which does not work.

I know how to set 50% in-fill so I guess the big question is: how do I activate “support structure”? I’m assuming this is the key element I’m missing. I'm using Pronterface with slicer.

I used ReplicatorG (0034 though I suspect this option hasn't changed much) and selected "External support" in the "Use support material" drop-down in the Generate Gcode dialog box. Not sure if you have that option?
