I printed this one in TPU (Thing 1062061) but it is big and heavy!
I'd like yours with the 2 holes (like the other one has) like a store bought cheap fly swatter has. Then you can you the handle from your old broken swatter!! Or use a coat hanger.

Good simple design though.

Hi wirlybird,

I printed this one in TPU (Thing 1062061) but it is big and heavy!

It is parametric - you can just reduce its size and its thickness in the script to your liking.
What kind of TPU did you use ? I have never used TPU so far, so I wonder how this material prints out and how it behaves?
When I printed it out in PETG it was a bit too stiff and broke easily.
Can you post a pic with the TPU - I am curious ... ;)

I'd like yours with the 2 holes (like the other one has) like a store bought cheap fly swatter has. Then you can you the handle from your old broken swatter!! Or use a coat hanger.

Maybe it would be a good idea to add the the fastener with the two holes to the script, so that everybody can choose?
I just dont have a store bought swatter here so that i could measure and try it out.

I used Hatchbox black TPU. I use it often and it prints pretty good. I'll try to post a pic later if I can remember!

I'll have to look a the script and see. Never paid much attention to that.

I did the first one in PETG also and it broke fairly easily.
