I have TPU loaded in the printer and a tiny bit of spare time today... allow me to see and print the model from Fusion, please?

Sure thing, broski! All I've got for TPU is green, so hope that works for you.

Sweet! I'll print you out a few.

Ty - I made the changes I wanted to make, and added you to the project. Enjoy!

I think I'll add this to thingiverse once I print a few more.

Sweet! Thanks.

I wanted to consider a more thumb friendly tabs. Athena has two complaints about tube caps... they either fall off too easily or they are almost impossible to open with one hand.

I witnessed her opening one by dropping her marker and using both hands.

Next comment will be "capless pack?' Yep... she has a couple and doesn't like them. :/

I think that a better thumb tab would be a great idea as well. Looking at it now with that in mind makes me think I will have a harder time opening with gloves on.

Yeah, good idea. I thought of that last night, but forgot about it today when I was making changes. How big of a tab would be enough?

I'm thinking 3/16" out and 1/2" wide should do it. Either rounded or square, up to you.
TY, your thoughts?

Could you add a slight chamfer to make it pop more easily?

Both sound like excellent ideas.

I want to test an idea... but it may be easier to ask first...

Can you print TPU onto an existing part made from PLA and have the TPU release from the PLA?
