Tweezers to handle small samples3D printer parts and enhancements

Tweezers meant to handle rather small and light samples. Design by a3lex (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1363100) was modified to make it easier to handle larger samples more firmly. The tips were made larger and the tip angle modified to be more parallel with the sample surface, which prevents the sample from moving when holded with the tweezers.
Materials and methods
The item is printed as a single piece. Tweezers printed out of PolyLite PLA felt firm and flexible enough. Other materials are also possible but the flexibility and other properties depend on the used material.
