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.
