Good design , i used magnetic tape and it works

You did it now!! That part should print fine, without any problems.Shows no errors, and sets flat in my Simplify3D program build bed display i just got. Thanks for the update. Will be my next print. Thanks!

Been trying to print, but has problems i've never had or seen in a print. Tried both the updates which includes the 1.69 and the others. Non will slice properly to print at all. The first layer is not level i think and the slicer is leveling (below the bed) i think and cutting off the bottom layer or maybe more than 1 or 2 layers are being omitted.

Have you worked any more on this to correct the problems???

Would really like to print this.

Thanks for posting, please fix these issues so i may get a nice print.

Thanks, Rick.

Hey Rick,
I've uploaded a new model; Version 1.7.
Now, the problem of the first layer should be fixed. Also the errors that Slic3r gave with the privies versions, are no longer present.

I think that this will help you print.

awesome idea and good design. I will try to print it soon!

all i can think of is JJBA 'sticky fingers'
awesome make

Ye gods that's creepy. Nice work.

sorry for the long time waiting.. there was probably something wrong with uploading the file

Thanks, slicing looks good now. Cant wait to print it :)

Can you upload the 1,69 file :)
(I got a Double Extruder printer.)

finger ok, tentacle ok, but lets be careful about what comes out the zipper.

I also have been trying to print this and its not printing on the first layer causing lifting and goobering of my extrusion head. Im using a makerbot 2X.

Hey Retanotech, I also to give you the news that i gave Millerii: I have made an updated version (Zipper_Magnet_V01.69) The layer problem should be fixed right now.

Can you upload the 1,69 file :)

Would you share that updated version?

I try to slice both version with slic3r (v0.91 and 1.0) but it ended up situation where in firs layer there was only two spot, half from zip handle and and one spot from zipper, not whole first layer. Second layer was complete like should.
Don't know whats wrong, I would like to make this.

can you tell me which version it is you try to print?

I tried both versio. But I didn't put them in printer 'cause I check result that it didn't slice it good.
What program you use for slicing?

I have made an updated version (Zipper_Magnet_V01.69) The layer problem should be fixed right now.

Thanks for your reaction. I'm also using slic3r. I think i found out what causes the problem. the mesh is not perfectly leveled, later this week i can work on this issue. stay tuned ;)

i like to have another one with a tentacle.. maybe i make a mashup later
