3D Printed Parts

STL files for 3D printing are oriented to print "as-is" on FDM style machines. Original design source may be downloaded using the links below.

Slicing Parts

Supports recommended around the lanyard ears and slide switch. Slice with setting for PLA material.

The parts were sliced using CURA using the slice settings below.

  • PLA filament 220c extruder
  • 0.2 layer height
  • 10% gyroid infill
  • 60mm/s print speed
  • 60c heated bed
Wrist band parts are optimized for flexible materials, rigid material will not allow the bands to fit.

Flexible bands

This design requires an extruder capable of printing with flexible materials. If you're using standard Ninjaflex material (85A shore hardness), we recommend printing slow, around 20 to 40mm/s with the extruder temperature set to 240c. 

You can also use Cheetah Ninjaflex, which has a higher shore hardness (95A). The only difference will be in how flexible and how grippy the texture is.

Dual Color Bands

Print from 0mm to 0.8mm to print the first bottom color.

Then print from 0.8mm to 6mm to print the top colors of the band.

Retraction clean up

Flexible materials may need retraction disabled to print successfully, so we'll need to clean any left over material around the slots and grooves on the bands.

Customize Watch Band

The design of the watch band can be adjusted using Autodesk Fusion 360. Change the parameters to adjust the width, length and number of holes on the band.

Patterns

We can change the patterns for each band by editing the features in the timeline.
