3D model description

Archaeopteryx biting, articulated and fan-winged Archaeopteryx!

The earliest known bird and one of the most important links in evolution.

A recently de-extinct Jurassic jewel. It is very hungry and is looking for human fingers.

The body and wings are one piece with no mounts of any kind, print in place. The wings when you open them for the first time you have to be careful and do it shelf by shelf gently because they have a certain path and if you force them the little stops jump, before opening them see the video in the folder.

3 pieces, plus the eyes.

Very easy to print!!!

Use PLA. The bite varies according to the filament, the stiffer the material, the harder it bites but it breaks before, the idea is to find the balance to get the most out of the figure. Using quality PLA the results are amazing.

Print at 100% scale so that the mechanisms print correctly. Designed to be easy to print and durable.

Before joining the parts together, it is necessary to check that the mechanisms work correctly.

Include a version of a print-in-place part.

Easier assembly, the eyes act as a joint, you have to use a little glue.

Glass eyes are optional and you would need them 12mm in diameter.

BEWARE! With some strands it hurts your finger.

I would really like to see your impressions!!!!

3D printing settings

WARNING: If you usually have adhesion problems, you must solve them before printing the body.

Use quality filament in good condition.

Very easy to print even if it doesn't look like it.

100% scale so that the mechanisms print correctly.

3 pieces. Very easy to assemble, the eyes act as a union of the whole figure.

The first layer should come out perfect.

Without supports.

No edges.

Nozzle 0.4

Layer 0.2

Wall 1.2 or more

Filling 30% or more.

With some prints I have had to set the z-jump to 0.4, I advise setting it just in case.

The figure should be robust.

Position the flat part sticking to the bed.

For any problem do not hesitate to tell me.
