This tie was just a fun little personal project. I got the idea after printing
chainmail design. The center link I use is based on his while I designed the connectors, edge links, and tie knot.

The 3D Printer I had access to is a .6mm printer so this link size is the smallest I could get but I'm sure if someone wants to modify my .f3d file this tie could be lighter and more flexible with smaller links.

You need to lay the models so that the open part of the connectors are in the air. I found if you don't do this they're too small to adhere to the print bed.

Each piece has connectors that link to the next piece, just snap them together and glue the tie knot together.


How I Designed This
I am new to designing in Fusion360. The .f3d file is available for you guys and if there's anything you notice could have been done better I would love to know so feel free to comment.
