Dragon Hair-Sticks

My wife challenged me to come up with some hair-sticks for her. This is what I thought was appropriate… just saying…

I mean she is not a complete “dragon lady” but she still has time. Hopefully, she will not read this blog. Haha.

Not much to say, super simple print.

Apparently, the tips need to be quite smooth and sharp to pass through the hair easily. But I didn’t want them so sharp they could be used to stab someone’s eyeballs out (you know what I mean). In all seriousness, you may need to sand the tips to get them as smooth as possible. I lightly sanded them and then torched them gently to get them completely smooth.


Material: I choose to use PETG for its durability and flexibility but a stiffer material might be better.

My Setup:
Nozzle = 0.4mm

My Settings:
Layer height = 0.2mm
Line width = 0.45mm
Wall count = 4 (1.6mm)
Infill = 40%, I tried 100% to increase the stiffness but that made them feel too top-heavy to my wife. So I recommend 40% or less.

Designed to print without support.

Print Orientation: Laying flat.

Where to Get My STL Files


I am now posting all of my new designs on Thangs.com and plan to continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Some of my older designs may not have been migrated over yet so if they are not available on Thangs.com please check on Thingiverse.

Use, Licensing, Comments and Feedback

My primary distribution site for my design files is Thangs.com. Thangs.com is, in my opinion, leading the way in promoting designers and competition amongst designers which in turn fuels the growth of high-quality 3d printable designs for the benefit of our entire community. However, as a result, some of my designs are only available for free for 1 week from when first posted, so please download them when you see a new file available that you are interested in. Also, please like and save to help me with the competitions.

I do not permit the use of my designs for commercial purposes (i.e. you can not sell my design(s) or products printed from my design(s)) without first acquiring a commercial license from me. On Thangs.com I offer membership accounts for access to all my design files as well as a membership for commercial licensing which allows subscribers to sell printed products using my designs.

I welcome comments and feedback as we as requests for customization of designs. I will do my best to accommodate those requests.
