So i this tool injection molded or just produced via SLA? I've done a lot of SLA models for prototypes but never found the resins to be strong enough for a production quality part. What resin is this tool made out of?
hey are you by chance the person producing these? I got mine today and it snapped (edit - the socket for the big knob cracked )on pretty much the first turn. Needless to say Im not very impressed
Shapeways is a 3d printing service, they just print designs which you or others have created. No-one is really 'producing' them.
If you're not happy with the design you can always upload your own. Should be pretty easy to knock up a simpler version with thicker walls.
