Steampunk Snail

3D model description

I originally designed this as a cardboard model several years ago. I've made it a bit more curvy and added some rivets.

Size approx 150mm long, 80mm high & 40mm wide.

Two types of shell are given. One has the spiral flat (snailshellflat, 2 parts) and the other has the centre of the spiral sticking out(snailSHELLcontour, 2 parts). You can choose which you like better.

Glue parts together with Super glue.
Note: The eyes and eye stalks are left & right handed.

3D printing settings

Printed with 0.15mm layers & 15% infill (grid). 0.40 nozzle used.

The STLs are set up so they should be in the best orientation for printing. The size given is about the smallest you can get with keeping the rivet detail.

The examples were printed on a Prusa 3 Mk3 using Prusa PLA filament "Pearl".

Total printing time approx 11 - 12 hours total

Some parts require support.
