Here’s an intriguing material science experiment — treating PLA to make it flexible. While this line of investigation is still in the “this appears to be working” stage, it is nonetheless an interesting to check out over at Thingiverse Thing 98268:
okay, so yesterday I uploaded a video of a few parts I have managed to make into flexible pieces. So today I am giving you the how to. (I waited to make sure the parts remained flexible and to see if I could come up with a suitable way to restore the color to some of the treated parts.)
