Plastic type?

  • Flexible, unbreakable, yet holds a bend. I am looking for a plastic like a floss-pick. It is flexible on slight pressure, but will hold a bend on higher pressure.

    I have consulted a couple of people here and the answers are pretty consistent. The instinct is to recommend a nylon or polypropylene for the appropriate strength and flexibility. However, the size of this model as you described is the chief concern. It is extremely difficult to truly make a recommendation without seeing the model itself. Not everything can be successfully 3D printed and not everything that can be printed for use in an actual application. If you can provide the model or a picture of it, we may be able to give you some more concrete answers and recommendations.
