What If I Don't Have A 3D Printer?

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.

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).

 

Printing Gems

 

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.

Cleaning Parts

 

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.
