3D printing settings

Tether:
The tether file is designed to be printed in NinjaFlex (or similar) on a printer with a .4mm or .6mm nozzle, although other nozzle sizes may work as well.

On a printer with a .4mm or .6mm nozzle, the file should be sliced with 1 perimeter and 100% concentric infill. A layer height between .2mm and .3mm is recommended.

Once the tether is printed, a slip knot must be created. To do this, Insert a paperclip or similar into the small end of the tether, and pull the large end through.

Installer:
This file is optional, but can assist with installation. Print in ABS or PLA with a single perimeter and 20% infill.
