LEGO builders that would like to take their building skills to different surfaces may be interested in a video published by Adafruit this month which shows how Flexible Lego Tape can be created using a 3D printer and Adafruit’s own Ninjaflex 85A filament.
Watch the video below to learn more about the Flexible Lego Tape that can be fixed to almost any surface enabling you to create Lego constructions on walls, ceilings and even Windows if desired.
In this guide, we’ll show you how you can 3D print flexible lego strips. These strips are 3D printed with a rubber like material that allow it to cling to glass surfaces without any adhesives! The bottom of these strips are able adhere to glass using suction, so this allows you to build lego projects with lots of different bricks so you can make pretty cool scenes!
The secret to making NinjaFlex cling to glass surfaces is to use a heated glass bed! The bottom of the strips are glossy and smooth. The heated glass bed fuses the layers together which creates an a glossy surface. When the surface is pressed up against a glass surface, it creates an air tight suction that can hold a fair amount of weight.
