3D model description

I became fascinated with flexis on 3d printed websites. I later thought that most flexis were flat and boring... I decided to make some flexis that were 3 dimensional. It is like other flexies, but the special thing about this is that it is even flexier than a 2d, (a 3d flexi usually is more flexible that a 2d flexi.) It has sockets in the center to provide 360° movement.

In the picture, I used multiple colors for the parts. Use flexible filament or carbon fiber filament to give it a funky twist.

You could use 3D editing websites like Tinker-Cad to enlarge the size by 2 if you are having any difficulties with the miniature pieces.

3D printing settings

printing time: ~ 6 hrs for all parts combined*
assembly: about 20 minutes
tools: glue, scraper, knife(optional)
infill: 15% line
dimensions: 4.5in x 1.5in x 1.2in

If you have trouble with the ball and socket allignments, you can use a knife to flatten the ball to make it easier to get in the socket, when you have trouble with the general assembly, try adjusting the print settings so your 3d printer will print slower and more hi-res --> slower speed = better quality the parts are printed.

Use glue, (super glue preferably) when attaching the parts together with the backbone connectors.

*time measured with the product printed at 150% its normal size.
