Designed a new bike lamp mount. The silicone strap mount wasn't ridged enough and would move when going over bumps.

Then as you can see, the lamp is glued because I fell in the summer and it shattered. SOOO perfect time to test out some flexible filament.
I created a case for it. First time using flexible, worked great!

What kind of settings did you have to use to print the flex? You've also got a third party hot end don't you?

Brace parts on print surface.jpg

Relatively small brace post for the GPU. Seems to work as advertised and is scalable. The model has an interesting locking thread designed to prevent it from creeping due to vibration. Not completely sure if I like the copper silk print, or if I'd rather have it done in transparent PLA.

I modded the original model to include a recess on the bottom of the base in order to incorporate a magnet. (Visible in the installed closeup).


Scale 45 percent.jpg

I said it was scalable, and that's a good thing.... the initial model was YUGE!!!!!! I had to scale it down to 45%.
