Not just another Brio Railtrack!
This Flextrack can be bend sideways, upways or downways to build curves, bridges and to overcome obstakles!
check out this short clip: http://youtu.be/rw0LYmu16r8
It's designed to be printed in single-line-style!
with superfast printing (300mm/sec @0.24mm) it takes 12min with regular printing (60mm/sec @0.2mm) it takes 35min
- rail track can make 90 degree turns
- the running surface has extra ziczac's for smooth running
- the male and female connector do flex-press-fit
- it's lightweight and quite rigid!
this thing was made in tinkerCAD, go remix it! http://goo.gl/yPv6ve
I made an extralong version! 195mm! Should still fit into most 3D Printers...

New Video: Extra long Version, Printed with strong PLA-HI (https://creamelt.com/?product=creamelt-pla-hi-blue&lang=en)
for printing, i used the spiralize-option in cura, but you also can also just print without infill and a single-wall setup (optimized for 0.4mm nozzle)
i also used 20% more flow as the standard setting.
you can print this thing very fast, there is no part where it needs to be super precise...
