I had trouble with the comb bristles not printing any interior spaces. Only a shell was being printed and making it very brittle. I increased the size of the print to 105% (5% increase) and it solved the problem. Just thought i'd share if anyone else had the same problems.

I have attached a photo of the problem and also the program that I had it sliced in.
Thanks for the file! Using them as stocking stuffers for this Christmas!

Thanks! Cura seems to handle that better

How to set the print options so that the comb lines will print at once (can`t seem to find out how to change this). Now the comb lines print so that there are 2 walls and 1 line of infill for each comb but the infill line prints half on first run and then fills the other half by jumping between combs, which causes lines/artefacts between combs)?

What are you using? In Cura you can play with "Print thin walls" and "Wall lines".

Thanks for responding. I am using Cura indeed however changing those settings doesn't help. I set the option "Fill Gaps Between Walls" to "Nowhere" but i'm afraid this will make the combs to break too easy. Anyway, i cleared the print already anyway but was curious about the strange way the combs get printed out.

This is how it should look. It is quite strong even in PLA

Question, I printed one parallel to the bed (laying flat) and it printed a base layer under the combs. Any recommendations? Should I not use any plate adhesion?

Yes, brim and raft should be disabled when printing this

great design, but do you have a shaping tool for nose hairs. Please consider a beard braiding kit. <say that 3 times fast) I want to make a lighting pattern of my friends beard as he sleeps - have somping for dat. What about something for the ladies.... u nom wat i meen

For nose hair just print the same at 10% scale

Constructive Criticism: Please add printing specs, such as infill percentage, adhesion layers, etc. etc.

For some reason, this model printed out in loose spaghetti in the shape of the comb. was a mess to clean up. Thanks!

Strange, did you printed it parallel to the bed? I added the instructions but there is nothing special about them

That is the best idea EVER!!!!

i totally dig the drawn ilustration ! :D

Any chance of a bowl for hair cuts? ;) Sarcasm!

hahaha awesome! I love it.

thanks for saving me 10 bucks, you the real MVP

This is bloody brilliant mate! Thank you so much you magnificent beast!

You are the MAN!
thanks for putting this together.

I curious what spurred the beard trimming tool design frenzy? Is there a contest I don't know about?
Also, where's the designs with some pizzazz like Lightning, Flames or the ever popular Star-Burns?

The design it is just based on a couple similar tools available in amazon. None of which ships to Chile. I can't understand the last part.

It's just a joke. I was saying why doesn't someone design a tool to cut lighting bolt or flame edge instead of the usual curve. As for Star-Burns:

If you can't just grow those naturally, you're hardly man enough to sport them!

Ahhh ok lol... Anyways these shapes are fucking lame ;)
