  1. awesome work as always! printing with TPU give me flashbacks! I was kinda of surprised the bamboo handled it that well. i've had to slow down my prints significantly to get TPU to even begin printing 🙂

  2. Awesome 😀 In the same time, expensive sandals and failure 😀 I love your 3d printer. You upgraded from Prusa?

  3. Great video man! Could you please do more videos of you showing a design process using fusion 360? Today's video was really informative and fun to watch.

  4. You need to glue some water wicking material to the top layer of the sandals for extra grip.

  5. The buildup to this video had me anticipating it. And it paid off! I'd love to see you refine it and give it another go. It would be interesting to watch your rapid iteration testing approach from your free 3d peint fix videos with these sandals. Maybe the goal could be adapting to a different size shoe for someone else once you have it more functional?

  6. I have size 16 feet (yes you read correct) and have been looking at 3D printing some sandals/shoes for a long time as I cannot get anything in my size in the UK… due to my size I’d probably have to print it in two parts and might try making a mould with it. I can then cast it using some tough resin/plastic.

  7. Definitely could've saved that print and the material! You can modify the gcode to pick up from the layer the clog started on with every other fdm printer. Happy to help if you run into this again 🙂

  8. Great work Morley! Despite not being 100% satisfied with the result, it is pretty amazing it is possible to make something like this at home. I feel a conundrum with deadlines like this, on one hand you have to "get it done" but on another you have to accept more flaws or take more risks than you otherwise might!

  9. All this foot based content for free? This could have been a Patreon Exclusive. Lol just kidding.

  10. Do you have a store? I’m just curious do you only do content creation? Or do you work another job as well? Totally being super nosy. Are you married?

  11. You should've used some infill, 100% is too much. I used to make some insoles and we used 25% at maximum, and it was still very rigid. Anyways! Love your videos, excellent job!

  12. Oh man I really wanna see you do further permutations on this design, the process is fascinating!

  13. I really love how this is both an indept 3D printing tutorial AND a crazy adventure into the wild!

  14. Man, I used to live there, and I miss it so much. The people are the kindest, most welcoming people in the world. Pura Vida!
