Silicone Sock Retention

Please Login to Comment

Just want to share my method of keeping the silicone sock in place, and allow for easy removal.
It's a cut and bent piece of large paper clip.
The 2 pics say it all.
Hope ya like it.

nice print.. it seems that you print it at a smaller size than the original?

Hi and thanks. I like the fact thay you post nice models that are actually printable on repraps rather than just posting a 3d object that is not really printable.
Yes this print is scaled down 50% which I regret now as its such a nice model. I was having trouble with my printer after installing a new print head so I thought I would try a smaller version rather than a 6 hour print in case something goes went bad :-) I might have to do it again full size now.
