Squishy Turtle

Prints (2)

Description

Summary

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. Check out my process for designing this thing here

The model assembles with the printed H-Clips and needs no glue. The parts print without the need for supports. 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. If you are interested in my design process and latest 3d printing experiments, check out my website and my Twitter.
