Serpentine belt ...
Interesting buckle mechanism. I'm curious to hear how well that holds up.
If I were printing a part like that I'd probably do it in PETG though. PLA is pretty brittle. Very cool though
The buckle was the tricky part. You need supports and there was a lot of picking out the pieces with tweezers, hemostat and scalpel and jewler file work on the pin holes.
It snaps together nicely and holds.
No, not brittle at all. Lotsa "give" maybe even stretch.
Very easy to add and remove links to adjust.
I was thinking repeated bending of the clasp
It doesn't really bend that much. Just kinda clips in and stays there. Wearing it today and it really turned out nice.
