Printed with Ziro clear blue PLA filament on the Prusa MK3.

Turned out very nice!

Interesting buckle

Interesting buckle mechanism. I'm curious to hear how well that holds up.

very cool

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.

It doesn't really bend that much. Just kinda clips in and stays there. Wearing it today and it really turned out nice.
