Description

A stretchy bracelet thingy, inspired by Emmett's stretchlet http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:13505.

I'm thinking of using something similar in future as a tyre on a toy car.

Instructions

Print with no infill. The example pictured was sliced with skeinforge in makerware at high quality so I selected 0 infill and 0 shells.

UPDATE - A step file has been added if anyone wanted to play with the design.

argh! makerware does not allow 0 shells. any info would be great.
Hi, i'm guessing they've updated makerware so that 1 shell now does the same thing? i'm not sure, it's worth a try. If not it will probably require a custom profile.

Could you produce an stl without the bottom and top closed? If I slice and print on my replicator, the filled structure also comes out.

Have you tried slicing it with 0 infill and 0 shells? I can try when I have a spare minute although I'm not sure how thick to make it so that it only prints 1 shell
the r2 acrylic plate is just horrible! it is very warped

glass plate is almost the only way you can get flat prints

usually people go to a local glass shop and get it custom cut for 15-25$
to anyone else, it is easy to cut glass and the tool is only $10 plus the 2$ glass from home depot
Thanks, yeh the levelling process is one of the various problems I'm having with the rep2 so far, I guess it's down to the build plate.

The final checkpoint at the end of the levelling process is always a lot tighter than all the other points. I may have to go down this route.
I just printed this, it has to be the best looking print I've made to date. Finally got this machine to print at .1mm layer height successfully, thanks to my newly cut glass build plate (Thanks Dearco!)

Nice work, man. It printed excellently!

Cheers! out of interest what was the reason for getting a glass build plate? and where did you get it from?

Thanks.
