Bow tie for easy 3D printing. No support needed! Clip included to add elastic band to the bowtie.
The bowtie has some fold lines in the design so it looks pretty realistic. I made this for a friends wedding and nobody noticed it was 3D printed until I told them.
Let me know what your experience is with this item and feel free to play around with it! Would be nice to experiment with some cutout patterns and such.
I printed the bowtie with a 0.125mm layer height and that worked fine. The 3D printed texture actually gives the bowtie a nice satin finish look from a distance. 10% fill ratio worked great for me and made the tie nice and lightweight.
I connected a black elastic band to the tie by glueing the clip part on the back face of the tie. You can change the design if you like for a different way to wear it.
