3D model description

Inspired by a well-known Mexican toy, these are little turtle toys with heads that swing and sway and bob. When you're stressed out, the bobblehead turtle will remind you to chill out and go with the flow.

The head us suspended on either a thread or a bent paperclip from inside the shell. I superglued the knots on each end of the thread (attached to the head and attached to the shell) to make it more stable.

There are 3 parts to print: the shell, the legs, and the head. Attach the head to the shell with a thread or bent paperclip first (make sure to check the length so that it swings properly) then either fit or glue the shell onto the legs. If you don't glue it, you'll be able to replace the head, but it won't stay together if you pick it up by the shell.

3D printing settings

No Supports for any of the 3 parts.

Normal settings should work fine, though there are some steep overhangs inside the shell. You can't really see them on the finished product, so they don't need to look perfect.
