This easy print was designed to be made with flexible filament for some Halloween fun. Use it as a cat toy. Hang with fishing line. It still works in PLA, it can fly but it just won't flap. You only need a small amount filament to print. Video of bat flapping here
I create these designs to encourage people to try out flexible filaments or get some new interesting colors of flexibles. For info on purchasing samples of several brands of flexible filament, TPU for as little as $1.99 per sample see 3dprintny.com
We developed a great way to distribute cost effective quantities of flexible filament: Splash Spools. A generous amount of filament on a spool with a case so it's not flopping all over the place. Splash Spools store easily in a desk drawer, stacked space or even hang on a wall. Available on www.3dprintNY.com , eBay and Amazon. We stock NinjaFlex, Cheetah, Armadillo, EEL, Filaflex, Flexy2 and Flexy.
