3D printing allows the creation of features that would be impossible to make using traditional manufacturing processes. It appears most public submissions thus far have not utilized these advantages, so I attempted modify the bracket using one of the key benefits of additive manufacturing: Internal cavities.

While my modified bracket looks very similar to the original, the changes are all internal. I created a series of internal cavities which reduce the volume by nearly 5 cubic inches, a 20% reduction. A section view of the part, as shown in the attached image, reveals the internal cavities.

Original Volume: 28.27 cubic inches.
Modified Volume: 23.03 cubic inches.
