Summary

This watch-band is designed to snap-together so you can print different colors and swap out links on the fly. This is still a work in progress, the clasp needs a lot of work, and the links need to be beefed up. Nonetheless, I have no trouble wearing it for about a month before having any issues!
Designed for the Fossil watch as pictured.

Instructions

Print at 30% infill:
Each Watch should include:
2x watch_link_end.stl
1x watch_link_clasp_2.stl
1x watch_link_clasp_1.stl
1x watch_clasp_clip.stl
8x watch_link2.stl
To Snap together/apart, get two of the links at a 90 degree angle to each-other, and add a little torsion. You'll notice that the rectangular male 'peg' will match the female side with the notch.

What do i have to scale 1x watch_link_clasp_2.stl up to in order for it to fit

Great design, thank you.

give us the missing part to the clasp!!!!

I've redesigned the clip check out my ipod adapter it has an improved clasp for this watch band. I combined the makerbot watch clasp with the links from this watch band. I've not had a chance to print it out yet but it should work better than what is already here.

made a bracelet, and a different clasp system using your shape as a starting point.

I want to make my thing a derivative of yours but the licence you chose doesn't allow derivatives.  If you change it I can then put my ipod adapter as a derivative of your thing.

I'm adapting my thing to use your design because it actually works... http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:35946http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... 

Hopefully pics and stuff soon to follow.

MakerBot Watch - iPod 6th Gen adapter - Fully Printable

First of all I really like your idea, but I have a problem with the clasp clip, its holes are too small to link it to a watch link, I would really like to make this work for my watch too (I edited it to fit 24mm width size).

Could you provide us with a more updated version of the clasp clip?
