Step 1: 3D Printed Bracelet: Printing
The design printed very well, and there were few small plastic bubbles on the bracelet. Over all, the bracelet was smooth.
Step 2: 3D Printed Bracelet: Bending the Plastic
A bent the vegetable plastic (that's eco-friendly) by using a hot hair dryer and warming up the plastic, and wrapping it around a paper tube. The plastic is bio-degradable and made out of the pigment from vegetables.
