3D model description

Print-In-Place, No Supports, Articulating Fidget Toy


Arms outstretched, prepared to embrace, the reaper shows his bony face. But do not fear, it's not your time; beneath his cloak, he's just a spine.

This Grim Reaper model is composed of 2 separate pieces. The Reaper Cloak and the Skele-Spine Snap-Flex Fidget.

This articulated fidget toy integrates the Mimetics 3D "Snap-Flex" joint. This allows the Skele-Spine to both move smoothly, mimicking the fluid motion of living creatures, AND stabilize in a firm pose, providing a premium fidgeting experience. Each SNAP will resonate as a symphony of satisfaction to your ears, confirming your masterful manipulations.

This Skele-Spine is the fifth creation in a series of Snap-Flex models by Mimetics 3D, and it's available for free for a limited time.

To accommodate different printer settings and filaments, I’m uploading 3 different tolerance levels for the Skele-Spine to ensure that you get the best fitting, most satisfying “SNAP” with each of your prints.

This is the Medium tolerance model. For the other tolerances, please check out the other versions of the model below:

Tight Tolerance Grim Reaper:
Medium Tolerance Grim Reaper:
Loose Tolerance Grim Reaper:

Please try out each to see what works best for you, and let me know which version you prefer!

Make sure to revisit us frequently for more thrilling Snap-Flex models to come. We're eager to hear your feedback and collaborate on refining this model going forward.

3D printing settings

Print Settings:
0.2mm Layer Height
3 Wall Loops
3 Top Shell Layers
No Supports, Print-In-Place at 100% scale. Going any smaller may disable the Snap-Flex joint.

These tolerances are TIGHT and you'll likely have to snap each segment a few times before it's loose enough to snap/unsnap easily. I recommend you use regular PLA or PLA+. ABS might be even better, but I haven't tried it yet.

Silk PLA is a bit softer and may not click as nicely. I'd also be more concerned about silk PLA holding up to the wear and tear.
If you print this in resin, please let me know how it turns out. I imagine you would need a more flexible/less stiff resin for it to work appropriately.
