Conductive and flexible plugs to get earthing/grounding for ESD protection etc, in this case using my filament PI-ETPU 95-250 Carbon Black.
Could perhaps be used for:
¤ESD-protection (make sure to use 1MOhm, use extra resistor, that is what is used in the industry)
¤Earthing: http://www.earthinginstitute.net/ (better to use a wire to the actual ground outdoors!)
In my case I measured aprox 1KOhm resistance through the type F plug (Schuko) http://www.worldstandards.eu/electricity/plugs-and-sockets/f/ at:
¤Temp: 230 deg C
¤Speed: 3600 mm/min
¤Top layers: 8
¤Bottom layers: 7

I do not claim that these designs will work in any special way or that it is safe to use. Make sure the ground and neutral are not mixed up in your wall socket, do not risk anything, consult your electrician! You use my designs on your own risk and I am in no way responsible for any damages or injuries.
Please check out my unique UV-stable, flexible and conductive filament called ETPU 95-250 Carbon Black filament.
Don´t need the conductivity? Well the conductivity is great for some things but perhaps not your first choice? Then consider this:
This filament will give you some really nice benefits if the conductivity is not an disadvantage for your 3D printed design:
•The material composition eliminates “stringing / webbing” issues.
•The hardness of 95 shore A and the carbon black filler makes for great print abilities.
•The carbon black filler is an excellent UV stabilizer thus the prints are built to last in very harsh environments.
•The matte black surface finish has a very exclusive look.
•The material feels very nice and dry to touch.
•It´s not too stretchy and will do great for timing belts etc.
