Why? Why not, seeing the Ape and Turtle are liked I thought I’d have another go at creating a zoo.
After printing the support should snap of easy by twisting it and the snake is fully functional. There will be a little support left in the ball joints but this will fall out by playing with it.
It’s a friendly snake that does’t bite or strangle!
I do appreciate feedback if you print it ;o)
I’ve included a file with support, that should work on more systems than my own. It cut’s down printing time by a hour for me using these settings:
- Layer height of 0.15 mm
- Outer walls speed 60 mm/s, infill 75 mm/s
- Infill 25%, bottom and top at 0.6 mm and walls of 0.5 mm thick.
- I advise to use a brim to keep the 23 parts on the build platform until they connect.
I left the model without support on here so you can always create your own support if my method doesn’t work for you.
