Introduction: Impossible 3D-printed Bolt and Nut

About: We supply tools and know-how for digital and manufactured creation. - http://creative-tools.com - http://google.com/+CreativetoolsSe

This 3D-printable file demonstrates a feature which can be used in 3D-printing. The nut and the bolt are separate parts of the same STL file. By leaving a small gap (roughly between 0,2 and 0,5 depending on your 3D printer and print settings) it is possible to let one object rest and adhere to another during 3D-printing, but still make it detachable.

See the video for details on how this nut was removed from the bolt.
