What happens if in the heat of battle you accidentally drop your 'Nerf N-Strike Hyper Fire Blaster' and break a critical gear component? The battle is over and whole thing is a waste, right? Wrong. Using Onshape's cloud based CAD design software and a Markforged 3D printer, Dragon Innovation CEO, Scott N. Miller was able to design and 3D print a broken gear to get back in the action.
Check out the whole process, from the CAD design, to the 3D printing of the part all the way through to final re-assembly.
Be on the look out for a full teardown of the Nerf N-Strike Hyper Fire Blaster. We had fun looking into all of the fine tuned design and manufacturing for this cool toy, so stay tuned.
