If you’re working on the computer a lot, you’re probably happy to get of some exercise now and then. How about a 3D printed jump rope?

Makerbot-User „Curriculum“ – famous for the Frog Dissection Kit – has uploaded a nice design of a jump rope to Thingiverse. The infill of the chain link clip and the chain itself are 100 percent, the handles are at 2 percent. If the chain breaks, you can easily replace a chain link. Now go get printing – and do some exercise!
