Gluing FLEX pieces


Recommended Posts

Posted · Gluing FLEX pieces

Hi there,

I need to print 300x100mm piece in FLEX material (~2 mm thick).

However the bed of Ultimaker 2 allows only 220x220~.

Has anyone any experience of creating joint and gluing 2 pieces printed with FLEX material so that they would maintain their flexibility and look acceptable.

I heard something that silicone might work.

Thanks for any ideas

    There is adhesive silicone that you could use. The good ones have a primer that you use to prep both halves before glueing. They can be really strong.

     

    Thanks for commenting.

    Apparently cheap silicone based glue from hobby shop does the work
