Description

This original design creates a completely functional pliers from a single print, straight from the 3D printer. It brings out the functionality of nGen_FLEX ( http://colorfabb.com/co-polyesters/ngen-flex ) to its fullest by using different internal structures to create more rigid and more flexible sections in a single part. More about the project in this video ( in french sorry ) :

Materials and methods

For this pliers you need to use a flexible material like Colorfabb nGen Flex.
