Download and 3D Print

The 3D printed parts can be downloaded with the link below. 

Slice Settings

Depending on your 3D printer, you may need to adjust the slice settings. We tested the closure on a Sigma BCN3D, Deltaprintr Go and a Printrbot Play. They do not require any support material and are oriented to print "as is".

  • Nozzle: 0.4mm
  • Extrusion Multiplier: 1.0
  • Extrusion Width: 0.48mm
  • Layer Height: 0.2mm
  • Nozzle Temperature: 220c

Customize Shoelace closures

Our shoelace closures are designed in Fusion360. Modify the design by adjusting the magnet size, lace hole spacing and the entire size of the closure. Each action is labled in the timeline.

You can aslo download different formats to use in your preffered modeling program.

Adjusting magnet tolerences

 

Magnets can have small variations in size and thickness, so we’ll need to make sure the tolerances are pretty tight.

 

Carfully measure each magent and then update the height of the closure cavity.

 

Adjusting Spacing


The pattern feature controls how far apart the lace holes and magnets are from each other. Measure and adjust the values based on your shoes tongue size and laces holes spacing.

Adjusting shoelace closures size

The default length of the closures should work on most shoes but you could always update the design files to completely customize the size and look of the closures.
