3D printed tie Tie – Print and wear

Tie – Print and wear – Parametric by Nudel_P @ Thingiverse.

I present to you, the RepRap tie!

For years people have made ties out of wood, and I adopted the principle for 3d printing. Could it be a world first?

The basic idea is to take a 3d model, cut holes in it for string and then cut it into smaller pieces so the tie will bend.

I’m not overly satisfied with how the ties sits around the neck, perhaps someone has an idea for a better solution?

Also, any special ideas for a tie, just make a comment and I’ll give it a go. :)
