3D model description

The laziest Articulated Cat!

**No supports required. Just slice and print!

After printing, just move carefully all the articulations to completely free them.

*Disclaimer: Not MMU/multicolor models. Pictures shown contain hand-painted models.


3D printing settings

A good first layer is mandatory for the print to succeed. Be sure your printer is calibrated and you have good bed adhesion.

Good layer cooling is also recommended, as it prevents curling and warping on overhangs.

It came out great but the legs won't move or bend ;-;

Hi!
Sorry to hear that. If you share the detailed printing info I might be able to help (printer, slicer, scale, slicer settings, material...)

Wow thank you for responding. I'm not to sure what to do. I'm new to 3D printing.

Out of curiosity, has anyone been able to print it successfully on the resin printer? I've made a few mistakes with mine:
a) printed at 50% scale
b) cured the print before freeing the joints by articulating them
Going to take another shot at it at 90% scale tomorrow (had a very hard time fitting it on Photon Mono), but this time, I'll wiggle it loose before the final curing step.

I did it at 50% scale, and it was very very delicate. As you said it is important to free the joints before curing. And also a thoroughly cleand with IPA to remove every bit of resin, especially from the leg joints (these are the most tricky). I use a cheap magnetic stirrer and works fine. Good luck!

I already did it the same as yours, I just wanted to see it, I also published it for free on thingiverse

That's weird... This one should be easier to print than the octopus. Be sure you are using the last version with tabs. If you have good bed adhesion the only remaining issue may be curling/warping due to poor layer cooling.
Hope this helps!

I keep having issues when I try to print this model. I have had good success with the octopus and elephant models. The issues I keep having are either layer shifts about halfway through the print, or one or more of the legs gets knocked loose during the print. I'm going to try again on a raft to see if I have better results. if you have any suggestions I would love to hear them. I verified that all of my belts are tight, so not sure why the layer shifts happen.

Far as I can see.log in to you account on cults ,select your account then go to orders.Your download link should be there.Hope that helps.

If you are not able to download them again you should reach Cults staff. I can't help there, sorry

my laptop crashed and i lost all my flexi models how do i get them again please.
