Not to worry! You can use a 3D printing service such as 3DHubs or MakeXYZ to have a local 3D printer operator 3D print and ship you parts to you. This is a great way to get your parts 3D printed by local makers. You could also try checking out your local Library or search for a Maker Space.
Below are links to modify the design of the Crown, Gems and Battery Pocket to fine tune them to adjust to your printer tolerances.
The enclosure assembly was designed in Fusion 360. This can be downloaded in different formats like STEP, SAT and more. Electronic components like the board, displays, connectors and more can be downloaded from our Fusion 360 CAD parts github repo.

3D Printing Flexibles
The crown was 3D printed with FDM type 3D printers using Ninjaflex TPU filament. This material is flexible and rubbery so it can be folded, cut, and sewn – This makes it great for wearables! Printing this material requires a bit of know how (documented in our learn guide).
Use translucent natural PLA filament to make gems that will evenly diffuse the LEDs.
All of the gem elements are separated into individual pieces to make printing easier. Assembly is pretty easy and straight forward. Use the links below to download the STLs files.
Bits of string around the edges of the crown can be removed using flush diagonal cutters.
Flexible Battery Pocket
A small pocket is 3D printed in flexible filament to house the lipo battery and protect the wearer.
