Evaluation of members on the printability, utility, level of detail, etc.

3D model description

The design of this toy was inspired by Theo Jansen's Strandbeest creatures, and combines 3D printing with some off-the-shelf hardware to put the beauty of Jansen's walking mechanism in your hands.

Parts fit very tight, may need some sanding. Surprisingly strong once assembled.

Assembly instructions:

Top bar

Hip shafts

Joint pins
