Earring hooks by thecrazy Sep 16, 2012

Description

Printable earring hooks.

This is one of the most surprising thing I ever printed. I was sure it was going to be a failure but turns out they work very well! They are surprisingly durable.

Did some research and it would seem PLA is classified as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) by the FDA Section 184.1061 and another study here seems to point in that direction too http://koreamed.org/SearchBasi...

PLA is biodegradeable, but it is most certainly not "non-toxic" - I personly wouldn't make a pair of these for my wife, until i can print a food-safe non-toxic plastic on my rep-rap, I'm not taking any chances

Instructions

I print them in PLA. So far no one had any bad reaction to them.
Given what PLA is made of I think its safer than ABS.

I did not use any special settings to print them, they are so thin that they come out full no matter what you do. I have a 0.35mm nozzle.

If the little rings are not split, cut them and use two of them to attach a hook to your earring. This way even if the split lines up with the frame of the hook it doesn't slip out, its called redundancy :P


Now you have the hooks! Time to create more Printable earrings everyone!
