Hi Could you please tell me what printer you used exactly to print this with the flexible material you mentioned ?Also could also tell me what does two loops mean in the description you written.This will help me a lot for my work.Awating you reply.Thank you.

I used a Rostock Max from https://www.seemecnc.com
The "two loops" means I asked the slicing software to put two layers of the plastic on the outside edge of the grip as it prints it.

Thanks for the reply.I am here attaching images of the slicing software of Ultimaker could you tell me which options resemble the two loop concept you just explained.Also can you tell me the name of the slicing software you used to print the bike grip stl file above.Appreciate your help.

Your current setting of 1.05 mm for "wall thickness" would probable give you three loops (which would probably be fine).

I think what I'm calling "loops" is equivalent to the "wall line count" as described on this page.


I used KISSlicer but I'd recommend staying with the slicing software you are currently using.

But if I need to swap my Ultimaker with the printer Rostock Max you mentioned for printing flexible materials I need to use the KISSlicer software right but not Cura ?

I think it is possible to use KISSlicer with Ultimaker and also possible to use Cura with the Rostock Max. It is actually up to you. Printing with flexible material is also possible on both printers using either slicer.

Oh is it.Will try it.Thanks a lot for the information.
