3D model description

Here is your new companion, the flexy hippo! He is very cute and loves to wriggle in all directions. it's very nice to see him gesticulate in your hands, and to put him in all possible positions ;)

I created this new mechanism so that he can move his head in all directions and move his legs individually.

It is printable on the spot without support and without assembly, the only thing you have to do is to remove the borders of the legs and the head (see pictures 7,8,9). I added these borders to facilitate the printing so that everyone can print it ! It will take you 5 min to remove them with a cutter or a scalpel and the printer's pliers (see pictures 7,8,9)

After removing the edges of the legs and the head, if you notice that the axes do not turn perfectly, you just have to remove the small defects on the mechanisms. But personally I prefer that the axes turn less well so I can put the animal in different positions (see pictures)

I hope it's clear ;) it will make sense to you when you print it I think

**Have fun and don't hesitate to show me your impressions! I'd love to hear about it!

3D printing settings

**Simple print!

- no support*.

  • no specific adhesion

  • minimum 0% filling

- minimum 35% scale in your file cutter for printing

  • no need for high quality layers

The advice I can give you is to set up your plate properly before printing ;)

** PS: if the back legs display badly, don't worry it won't change anything to the printing, it's just a display problem **.

**Good printing!
