    FDM for soft grips

    Saw this, thinking about if (in house) FDM is now actually reasonable for low # production. Can start with a higher durometer than usual (~50a) but with air pockets (ala purple mattress)

    Surface finish will obviously be bad (though the texture isn't awful) - I suspect worse than SLA molds but better than soft molding is achievable with an acetone polish.

    and internal reinforcements will be needed but I like the idea of custom colors for custom markers:
