3D model description

Meet “Hephaestus” the articulated steampunk mechanical dragon. This guy is so much fun!!

!Prints in place without supports!

This is a fairly large print. Hephaestus prints in 3 parts that easily fit together. No additional hardware is needed. Prints on a Ender 3 or similar sized printer. Designed with a .25mm tolerance. Depending on your printers accuracy a small dab of glue or a little bit of sanding may be needed to fit the three parts together.

There is a small built in raft around the upper teeth. It is easily removed with a set of snips after printing.
