3D model description

This is a hard body top water frog lure I designed. There are 4 different versions.

FrogV1 = Two rear treble hooks.
Frog Weedless = One Weedless Hook (uses Gamakatsu 65114 Wire Guard Worm Hook)
Frog Belly Hook = Two treble Hooks under the body.
Frog Baby = Smaller version of FrogV1

The lures are printed in two halves and then glued together.

Even if you purchased these files that Copyright means you are NOT allowed to sell the model or any derivative of the model for economic or financial gain. For example, you cannot sell the digital model, a derivative or adaptation of that model, nor can you sell prints of the model. I do however grant permission for persons who purchase any soft bait molds to sell the rubber soft baits you make with one of my printed soft bait molds.... but again you CAN NOT sell the actual models of the baits.


3D printing settings

I print these lure in PLA+ with the following settings
(You'll have to experiment with what works best for you.)

Top Layers = 3
Bottom Layers = 3
Perimeter Outlines = 3
Layer Height = .10 mm
Infill = 25%
(I used 70% infill on FrogV1)
(40% on the Baby Frog.)

You can experiment with different infills and weights to get it to float how you like.
Supports = I do not use them but you can if you need too.
