3D model description

I made the outer layer on mine slightly giving yet tough with Fillamentum Flexfill 98A Pistachio Green.

Rolling out your muscles has been shown (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4299735/) to reduce delayed-onset muscle soreness after a workout, improving performance and promoting muscle growth.

Unfortunately, foam rollers and other rollers like this one are often incredibly expensive (a quick google search brings up several results in the $30-$50 range). Printing this muscle roller is an easy alternative, and though it'll use up a decent amount of filament, it'll still be significantly cheaper than buying an expensive one.

Having used both this 3D-printed one and a store-bought roller, I can confidently say that there's essentially no difference in experience. I included small ridges in a cool wraparound design that penetrate deeper into muscle tissue and improve results.

The outer layer, which I printed in semi-flex filament to make it more responsive, fits snugly onto the inner layer, which I printed in PETG to give it strength. It holds my entire body weight.

3D printing settings

Normal settings. I greatly reduced print time by using a large nozzle and low layer resolution.

Hey! Welcome to my page. I'm a full-time college student who designs models for 3D printing in my spare time. I generally focus on functional objects that take advantage of the unique capabilities of 3D printing, but sometimes I design things just for fun.

3D PRINTING & SUSTAINABILITY: I developed a website to translate industry research on sustainable 3D printing into knowledge and actions for hobbyists and makers like you! Check it out to learn more and to make an actionable plan for more sustainable 3D printing.
