3D model description

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.

Layer height and inflill:
- BASE: 0.2[mm] - INFILL
- WALL 1&2: 0.2[mm] - INFILL
- ROOF: 0.2[mm] - INFILL
- SEAGER: 0.2[mm] - NO INFILL
- CRANKSHAFT: 0.2[mm] or 0.1[mm] - INFILL

Who can help me to make a 3d mould of a full body girl/boy baby doll mould, to use for clay.. To print on my 3d printer.
Thank you

Hi Spacers!
the cylinder that you talking about is only a host function is only to extend the print time of the last layers. in this way the plastic has the time to cool and the print is better! can throw the cylinder after the print! bye

Very nice work.
In DRAGON_Head_Teeth - Down STL , you have a circle. Where does this go ?

your welcome! good job! I can't wait to see your Dragon!

I figured it out, thanks to your comment "This parts have a single wall, is very flexible for the assembly". When modifying the print settings in Simplify3d, I found a setting in the advanced tab that allows for single extrusion walls.

Hi Claphead!
I never had this problem...I use Cura for slicing the STL file...Did you set a layer heigth of 0.3mm? or is a problem that you have for all the layer heigth set? If you see in simplified3d the STL FILE and if you have problem only during the slicing operation try to change the parameters of height, number of boundary lines, infill...
This parts have a single wall, is very flexible for the assembly...I think that the problem is in the slicing parameters.
you can also try to use cura3d for a test! let me know...we will find a solution! 😁

I'm having an issue slicing part two of the handle, the hour glass shape with the slit in it. I've used Simplify3d, Voxelizer2, and my Dremel software. They all slice the model as an incomplete object; not a solid but a bunch of little dots.

Hi adamantiz! you can rotate the dragon shape on both direction clockwise and
counterclockwise...but all the shape's pieces (body, head and tail) are joined to the same all the parts they move simultaneously with the crankshaft!

thanks for your message...and write me again if you have some other questions!

Hi cotton! you have to print 6 body1 and 6 body2...than start to assembly the Dragon from the Head that have a first body integrated and assembly the bodies hope I was clear...write me again if you have some other problem...bye and thanks you!

You need 12 bodies. Is it optional between body 1 and 2?
