The outer handles from the Tatra 87 car were originally forged. Today, for piece production, this technology is too costly and inconvenient. For this reason, we used two methods for their production, namely the cast iron casting and 3D printing of SLM method using the 316L stainless steel. The resulting products are precise copies that suit both aesthetic and strength purpose, as the handle is not under heavy load.
