I'm going to make some updates this coming week, keep an eye out!

Actually its okay, found it!

For those using Slic3r under 'module band()' change the 'scale([0.97,0.97,1.1])outband();' 0.97's to a lower number 0.95 worked for my 0.3mm nozzle.

How can I increase the thickness of the band? Slic3r has issues with it being so thin

Instructions

![CLASP -- Printable Sizable Watchband](http://teambudmen.com/isaac/thingiverse/clasp-block2.jpg)

### Installation and Assembly Guide
1. Pick your wrist size in customizer
2. Pick your strap width in customizer*
3. Adjust Pin-size if neccessary
4. Print CLASP
5. Put watch pins in holes
6. Attach each piece to either side of watch
7. Secure timekeeping device on wrist
8. Enjoy frustration free time keeping

**The script automatically subtracts 2mm leaving room to attach the strap to the watch body. A 22mm width generates a 20mm wide CLASP -- to get this number measure the gap where the pins attach the strap to the watch*

`Recommended Print Settings - 2 Shells, 340 microns, 0% infill`

Is anybody have some bugs with Pronterface /Slicr3 ?
I can't make my 17cm wrist size watchband for my pebble. I only have one (bad) part insteat of two.

The "wide body" strap design for the Pebble watch on Kickstarter (http://www.kickstarter.com/pro... was well received. Could a similar alternative Clasp with a 22 cm "pin" part and a 30 cm "band" part be posted?

chasen on May 16, 2013 said:

Of course I meant mm rather than cm.

Is the idea to snap the connector shut or bend it sideways and slide it in? Both ways seem prone to breakage.

ibudmen on May 16, 2013 said:

The idea is to slide in, there is less bend then you might suspect making the band surprisingly durable. Especially when printed in ABS.

Neat!

jameswood on May 13, 2013 said:

This looks cool! I'm thinking about printing one. What units are you using for "length of strap"? Does that number refer to an actual measurement, or is it relative?

ibudmen on May 13, 2013 said:

'Length of strap' refers to the radius of the cylinder the script it is creating, so in the case of a 22mm size it creates a cylinder with a diameter of 44mm. The strap is generated at the perimeter of the cylinder.

Whats the name of that watch? It's really interesting.

It is a Pebble smartwatch. I just printed this watchband for mine, actually.
