Flexible Gear Bracelet by jd_oc Sep 24, 2012

Description

Here is my double-convex flexible gear bracelet. It has curvature on the inside of the band such that it is more comfortable to wear. I couldn't find any other designs that had inside curvature like this on Thingiverse so I went ahead and designed my own, but I did get inspiration from Emmett's design thingiverse.com/thing:13505. I also used Joris' trick of modeling the bracelet as one solid for easy printing, thingiverse.com/thing:8488. I printed this out on my recently purchased Series 1 printer from Type A Machines (really enjoying this printer and its huge build volume). It is printed in PLA at 100 micron layer height with 0.35mm nozzle.

you need to set infill to 0 and disable solid top and bottom layers. enable jorrising too if your slicer supports it.

Have you printed this?  The model in ReplicatorG looks solid, as in the middle part is filled in.....

Hi sgrover, yes, I used inspiration from several other bracelets, most notably Emmett's design, and also Joris' trick of making it a solid for easier printing. I've updated my description with more details. Thanks.

Instructions

I sliced it in KISSlicer with a skin thickness of 0mm, and 1 loop and a layer height of 0.1mm. I also found disabling the wipe feature really improved the quality of the print.

Note: The .STL files are sized small, so if you are printing for an adult sized wrist, you will probably want to scale by 20-25%.

Looks kinda like Emmett's Stretchlet - http://www.thingiverse.com/thi..., but different.
