THE DRAGON IS BORN!!!...and it's time for a new SHAPE TO SHAKE!!!
I create a new kit for the shape shaker with a "DRAGON shape"!
The SHAPE SHAKER is a mechanical toy composed by several parts. All the pieces are printable with the only exception of a toothpick (length of 144[mm] - diameter 3[mm]) and they are mounted using only the hands and a screwdriver.
The assembly is very simple. If you encounter some problems during the assembly, use sandpaper and/or a cutter to do a post production of the pieces. Glue is not necessary for the assembly.
The housing is composed by: 1 BASE, 1 ROOF and 2 WALLS; all these 4 pieces are hooked with simple clips.
The main part of the mechanism is the CRANKSHAFT that is manually actuated thanks to an HANDLE (composed by 3 parts).
the DRAGON's parts (HEAD-BODY-TAIL) are coupled to the RODS with a slight interference. in particolar you have to insert the PIN first inside the last ROD and then inside the TAIL .
The13 RODS are connected to the CRANKSHAFT from above through the ROOF
The RODS are also constrained to a WOODEN SHAFT obtained from a toothpick (length of 144[mm] - diameter 3[mm]) inserted from the WALL_1 and closed by the SCREW.
That's all folks!
Shake your shape!
Have a nice Print!

I used PLA spools to print.
All the parts are printable without supports except for the crankshaft. I create a STL file of the supported crankshaft.
