A Twist on Tool Design

BONE is an innovative concept for the creation of tools through generative design and selective laser sintering. An algorithm for each type of tool is achieve in order to mimic bone-like structures which are lightweight yet durable. The internal structure saves up to 60% in material and weight without sacrificing durability and strength. The concept aims to provide a near infinite toolbox using a computer, SLS machine and medium like steel powder.

Designer: Henrik Balzer

    A total knock out. Great concept

    Wowie! I love tools..i love this!

    Genius idea.

    Mind boggling…i would love to see this in action if it goes into development stage.

  • joe says:

    Wonder how expensive this would be…not for everyone this hightech tool!

    I love the name *BONE* suits the concept perfectly.

    Speechless! Now this is what I call innovation.

    Why would a lighter hammer be a good thing? Not the best tool to use as an example of this technology.

    I agree with “me”, looks like it would be uncomfortable to use, there is a reason for rubber grips.
    Still nice to see people thinking outside the square though

    What?
    How can you achieve an algorithm? And why would you need one for each tool? Would you not be able to define the material displacement of this BONE stuff once and then reuse the same material proposition again?
