That is neat, but I'm very interested to know why it wasn't an exact copy. The adjustment wheel was very different on the copy. The splines on the red adjustment wheel were much flatter and wider than the real wrench.

Also, where were the words on the handle of the copy? The original wrench had words on the handle.

Default Impressive Color and movement!

There was a machine out for quite sometime that could make a 3D model in a clear plastic from scanning any 3D object

but not moving parts or color. that was very impressive!

This technology is about 10 years old. It does print 3D objects but only for prototyping purpose. There are many services online that you can use to print your designs. Or even test it but only for a short while. Google 3D printing services....

I wasn't questioning the "coolness factor". Just making an observation.

They made a statement when scanning in the wrench that it was accurate to a measurement smaller than a human hair. I'm just curious to know if it is that accurate, why is the copy not more exact? Were the differences intentional, or is it unable to be more precise in the duplication?

It is very accurate, the differences you see is the optical illusion due to the different colors of the printed tool. Same shape object of different colors appears different in size.

I've actually seen this process used to make AR receivers at home.

The world’s first 3D-printed gun | ExtremeTech

You can get a 3D Printer for around $2000 and start churning out receivers even if you are barred from purchasing firearms, and just buy the unregulated parts from normal channels.

I'm also curious about the actual strength. I'm sure it's somewhat strong, but I wonder if the "powder and resin" wrench is as durable as the steel original. I wouldn't think so.
