Thanks to Recreus, I have modified their Sneaker II for some individual shoes made for my son. I have lowered the heel for a less boot look and more of a shoe/slipper theme. The shoe lace pitch has been modified too. Then I have personalised it with my own logo.
Printed it in inverted colours from the original.
Printed in Recreus Elastic FFX filament. Soft, and squishy with 1.75mm FFX purple laces.
Here is a video of the Sneaker finished printing and being removed from the printbed: http://youtu.be/ge0dsxJjvgw
Scale to suit.
Printed on an Orca 0.4x with the following modification from Flexible filament : http://www.thingiverse.com/make:54389
Printed with support for a couple of bridging areas (set angle high):
- tongue tab retainer.
- tongue slot in nose of shoe.
I overrode the flow rate by 120% from normal PLA.
