About Flowalistik 

Flowalistik is a well-known face in the 3D printing community. His unique, visually-engaging designs have been 3D printed thousands of times all over the world. We have his educational model of the E3D V6 and a bunch of his low-poly Pokémon in our office. Do you?!

 

 

#E3DFlexibles2021

To coincide with getting Hemera back on the shelves, we decided to run a competition focused on flexible materialsHemera offers top performance with these materials thanks to its constrained filament path, so the lucky winner will receive one-of-a-kind special-edition laser-engraved Flowalistik Signature Edition Hemera, along with some other E3D goodies. Details below:

 

Design brief 

Design something that makes interesting use of flexible 3D printing material 

  • The design must be printable on an FFF 3D printer and be enhanced by flexible properties 
  • It can use a combination of different materials, as long as one of them is flexible

 

Rules 

  • The design can be aesthetic or functional 
  • Any design software is fine
  • Tag your entry with #E3DFlexibles2021 
  • No NSFW designs 😉 

 

How to enter

You don’t need to 3D print your design to be considered, but it is encouraged. Any 3D printer is fine. Send us pictures and tell us about the printer, slicer, and material brands used if you do.

Inspiration! What we’d like to see

3D printed cloth 

Living hinges and shock absorbent layers
