Update December 11 – 2016

Although the experts at 3dee had discouraged it, I was curious to find out how the hair clip would look in PLA. It was interesting to see how the print was built upon the support structure, but unfortunately after removing it the pin was a bit damaged.

  • The color is bright and the material feels really light weight.

To improve:

  • Quality of the print on the lower arc
  • Use finer sandpaper to remove the support structure

I am also testing a new polyamide print with a customised quote on the outer bow. Next week it will be ready. Keep U posted.
