I designed a ear or nose ring clasp for people who do not have piercing in their nose or ear. I would like your thoughts on it. I designed it for people who want to wear ear jewelry without having to get a peircing of the ear. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1865241

Ear & nose Ring Clasp (piercing free)

i like the design.. I am going to try it with my trans figure necklace charm: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1862813

I also want to make a ear ring clasp or people who do not have piercings.. This should also eliminate some of issues of abs in piercing hole..

I am also wondering who make the hook so long? i am suspecting that 1/3 of the hook can be snipped off and it will still be as strong for hooking into piercing? and the circle part can be made smaller? which can have it take more of a backseat to the ear ring charm attached to it?

While feasible, this is not ideal on the makerbot mini. The mandatory raft wreaks Havok with delicate parts.

Ouch, I can see how that would be a problem.

Can't you switch software? Like marlin and repetier? combined with blue tape you should get good results.

EDIT: Just thought of a quick hack, how about pausing mid print right after the raft is completed and laying down blue tape on top of it? The tape is not very thick, with a bit of luck it could work.

It seems that getting wire hooks, which I've done, is more sensible. However, the idea of blue tape is interesting! I just think it's a limitation of the low cost choice I made in getting a makerbot mini. There's no leveling ability so the raft ensures that all parts reach the platform. I've already lost a couple prints to failure in adhesion today! I caught it early.

another alternative to masking tape.. is to use some glue stick.. painting a bit of that down on the area the object is printed on.

You bet!


PLA is biodegradeable, but it is most certainly not "non-toxic" - I personly wouldn't make a pair of these for my wife, until i can print a food-safe non-toxic plastic on my rep-rap, I'm not taking any chances

Did some research and it would seem PLA is classified as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) by the FDA Section 184.1061 and another study here seems to point in that direction too http://koreamed.org/SearchBasic.php?RID=1131JR%2F1997.4.2.104http://koreamed.org/SearchBasi...
