The world’s smallest 3D printed drill machine

 

 

Lancy Abernethy is a maintenance engineer from New Zealand who has passion for small things and therefore he has created the world’s smallest 3D printed drill machine that works in reality.

First of all Lancy drew a plan of a normal sized drill machine through the CAD software onshape and then used his 3D printer and at a very slow speed he created the micro designed drill machine that measures 17mm tall and 13mm long.

Lancy wanted to create the tiniest drill machine and for that purpose he tightly packed all the parts as tight as possible according to Lancy it took him 3 hours to solder and try and squeeze the parts in. The wires kept breaking off when he was trying to connect them it was a very challenging task for him to hold the parts in place and try not to short the battery.

The mini drill is made of three pieces and the hearing aid battery is used in it, it has a headphone cable, a 3D printed chuck, a small button, a mini motor and 0.5mm drill piece.
