Adjustable Strap

The Adjustable Strap is used to hold things together. It allows for an adjustable “rope and hook” for astronauts to use. The construction guidelines have no restriction against creating a design out of 2 or 3 different print materials. Therefore, I have opted to use polybenzimidazole, a super strong plastic that will be printed as a fiber at an extruder temperature of 760 degrees Celsius; steel, with high deflective and elastic range properties; and a graphene reinforced ThermoPlastic Polyurethane, an extremely strong yet flexible material: each used for the body, spring, and rope respectively.
