Customizable Ear Plug with currently 6 design: Solid, Hollowed, Star, Heart, Positive & Negative Sign.

[UPDATE] 2013 / 04 / 12

  • Add Positive & Negative Sign.
  • Add "Part" parameter in customizer.
  • Add Multiple STL Outputs for dual-extruder.

!For dual-extruder: remeber to set "margin" parameter to zero.


Hello :)

All design has been tested with a diameter of 20mm and they work well.
Smaller is possible but I think under 10mm for hollowed models and 4mm for solid model it is difficult...

!For dual-extruder: remeber to set "margin" parameter to zero.

Let me know if you have any problem, I will do my best to correct them,
do not hesitate to propose new or improved design (* or English correction), this is a work in progress, new shape will come soon.

  • Please excuse my poor English.
    Thank you.

Where can I find a 4mm (6 gauge) plug model ???

You can use the Customizer to make your own version!

Sick design, probably going to print myself a pair, but maybe consider putting a warning for people who aren't super knowledgeable when it comes to body jewelry materials:

ABS - NOT SAFE for body jewelry due to the chemicals it's made from. Also, the extrusion process may cause some of these chemicals to start leeching from the plastic. USE AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION.

PLA - SAFE, plant-based and used in medical field. It will begin to biodegrade after some time, so watch out for that.

Also, the 3D printing process will leave surface imperfections on the wearable area and make it a breeding ground for bacteria. I would wear these through some Kaos earskins or something similar

El material no es dañino para tenerlo como expansion? al ser biodegradable?

Can you make one with a triforce from the Zelda games please?

Could you make some tapers/strechers? :D

nice can you tell me is there a reason for printing out the positive insert of the plug and how would I go about printing just the plug itself?

You can do it now, watch the update.
Thank you for your interest :)
