My dad used to make these for us from wooden balls when we were kids, but we got 3D printers now so this is a more modern version ;o)
This one is a little different than the other animals, the printed parts are still pre assembled but you need to put some threads on it to finish the toy afterwards. Use something breakable to assure kids safety.
The print is pretty easy because the support is already included in the file. Like always, if you print it out I would love to see the results :o)
Be kind and use PLA.
It prints in about 4 hours using these settings.
Layer height: 0.15 mm
Bottom and top: 0.6 mm
Shell: 0.5 mm
Speed 75 mm/s – 100mm/s for the infill
All the parts are hollow to create double walls for extra strength.
The support doesn’t touch the model but there is a gap of 0.2mm so the print skips one or two layers to have the support snap of easily after printing.
There are holes on top of the head and body and in the foot parts to attach the threading/wires to connect it to the controller piece.
