Assembly

Update 2024-02-12: there is now a print profile version that requires no assembly. However, this comes at the price of generation of lots of supports. Due the geometry of the model you might damage your model while removing the support: the long fin is only 0.8 mm thick and can easily break when not being super cautious. I advise against the profile, but it is your choice.

The bookmark requires zero supports if the two part print profile us being used. This means that it is easy to print and all surfaces have a nice finish. This comes at two costs, though. First, you need to wiggle the pull loose without damaging it, because it is printed on top of the slider. And second you connect the zipper and the actual bookmark part using glue.

carefully remove from build plate
gradually wiggle the pull free
verify that the fin fits into the slot
apply glue within the notch
connect the parts and let the glue dry if necessary

Printing Instructions

The zip chain has a lot of edges, therefore make sure the print plate has good adhesion. This model requires zero supports, therefore do not print too fast! Especially the pull can be problematic, since it is attached only with one line to the slider. I recommend to use my print profile, this worked well many times.

Printed on an A1 mini with PLA from various vendors (e.g. eSUN) on a 0.4mm nozzle.
