Squishy Turtle

3D model description

This 3d printed turtle uses the same flex concept from my Mini Monster Truck to create legs that allow the toy to bounce and scurry around when tapped. The head can also retract into the shell.

The model assembles with the printed H-Clips and needs no glue.

I had some fun designing the various shell patterns that can be printed. I can upload a blank shell file if anyone is interested in designing their own shell.

Too cool. Do you have a tutorial that shows how you put the 3d pattern on the shell. Im trying to learn how to do the same thing by replicating your model

I love it! Thank you for sharing.

Très sympa mais impossible à imprimer ! Les marges sont trop faibles pour pouvoir sortir un résultat exploitable.
Au final, et après 7 tentatives (avec des filaments différents, des températures différentes, des vitesses et des épaisseurs différentes), toujours impossible de faire coulisser la tête ou d'insérer les fixations dessous-dessus.
Sympa mais pas pour une imprimante normale...

Excellent concept & design! Congrats!
