    3D printed G-shock with lugs

    This is my latest 3D printed G-Shock experiment. I printed this bezel/case cover with lugs to fit 22mm straps. It works pretty well except that I made the springbar holes too small. I wanted to use fat springbars. I'll make corrections on the next print. I tried to drill out the holes but the stainless is just too tough! I also printed a white nylon cover that I like very much. I like the look and the lightness of nylon. I made this one in white and it looks quite good.

    The stainless is super tough. The ability to put standard strap on G-Shock also is awesome. Are you going to keep it proprietary? Or will you be offering for sell? Perhaps on Shapeways?

    I find this leap in technology fascinating. I hope you can continue experimenting and that the costs gradually fall. This is a great way to bring power back to the consumer.

    Re: 3D printed G-shock with lugs

    I'm constantly amazed and impressed at the new designs -- and I especially like this "bezel with extra lugs" design!

    While I understand and totally agree with the decision to make these to fit the DW-6900, one of the most iconic models and one that's still available in stores, I'm PERSONALLY a little disappointed that you haven't done anything yet with "squares" or the G- and GW-6900 solar and solar/atomic versions, of which I have several.

    Perhaps when you've perfected your DW-6900 designs and gotten a better feel for the "design + materials + shrinkage tolerances = final product" equation, you'll branch out to other G-Shock models? I'll keep my fingers crossed, and I'd definitely be interested in buying a "stock" metal bezel or two, as well an "extra lug" version!

    Please keep up the good work and keep us posted on the new ideas like this one!

    I want to do one for the 5600 but the problem is I live here in Hawaii and I spend too much time playing ukulele and hanging out at the beach. Plus I can be pretty lazy too sometimes. I really like the square G-shocks. I was looking at one on Amazon today.

    Could it be done so that the bottom of the case and buttons be more protected? I guess that would demand two pieces.
    Cheers!
