A few days ago, I made a post about an articulated cyborg penguin I had made for Snolabs. He will put your printer through its paces, as he has the following points of articulation:

  1. Turning head
  2. Moving wings
  3. Legs that can twist and fold
  4. Moving tail

There are 2 versions a 100mm and 80mm. The difference is some tweaking of tolerances to allow for scaling and not risk welded joints:-)

I found the following worked well:

.2 layer height
3 perimeters (this is very important, especially for the smaller guy)
15% infill
60mm/s but I am a printing slow coach…

Available in all the usual places but I shall link to Cults here:

Another very nice design. I’ve printed the smaller one so far.

Glow in the dark PLA. My boys are already fighting over it. A second one is printing now to help keep the peace.

Wonderful work as always @Louise_Driggers missing/deleted image from Google+

@Eclsnowman Ha! He’s fantastic. If you have time once you print the other one, maybe you could take a picture of them both glowing together. So happy your boys enjoy him.

So I just spoke to Norman from Snolabs and he says if you post your makes to Twitter and use the tag #SnoLabd3D then you can get 10% off a roll of their filament. It’s very nice indeed.
