Description

This is an African elephant with 22 movable joints.
The joint design of this elephant is different from the common chain-like design. These joints can be adjusted and fixed at different angles, allowing the elephant's trunk to be lifted and posed in various preferred positions. The tightness of the joints depends on the hardness of the materials used for printing. Using harder materials will result in tighter joints.

 

The reason it is named "Blank" is to encourage the printer to add color to the elephant's body. For those with multi-color 3D printers, they can try printing each segment in different colors.

 

When printing, please start by printing the tail. If the tail can rotate properly, then use the same printing settings to print the other parts. If the tail gets stuck and cannot rotate, please reduce the material flow to continue printing.

多關節素坯非洲象

這是一隻有22個可轉動關節的非洲象

這隻非洲象的關節設計與常見的鍊條式的設計不同,這種關節可以調整角度後固定,因此這隻大象的鼻子可以抬起並且擺出自己喜歡的姿態。大象的關節結緊迫程度與使用的材料硬度有關,使用愈硬的材料列印則關節的緊度愈緊。

之所以取名為(白胚)的原因,就是鼓勵列印者能幫大象的身體上顏色,若有多色3D列印機的朋友就可以試著在每一段使用不一樣的色彩列印。

 

列印建議
列印時請先列印尾巴,若尾巴能正常轉動,就以相同列印設定來列印其他部分。

若尾巴卡住無法轉動,請減少材料流量來列印。

Printed nicely in marble PLA. Articulation is really well done, it allows to lock in certain orientations for poses. I don't know if it's part of the model or slicing but I really like that only the small touch points has brims. Easy clean-up.

It's part of the model... the settings are set to No Brim, so they're only on the places where the designer put them in.

Great print! Even my husband (who would rather I print “useful things” like shelves and shadow boxes) thinks this elephant is wonderful!

50%, fun print under 2 hours
Not bad at 50% printed fine on the x1c the small articulations are a bit stiff and the geometry is a bit blocky so I don't think its gonna get a million makes!

I love the look and the way you can articulate the limbs and truck. The one issue is keeping the legs attached to the main body of the elephant. I am not sure if the joint did not print right or I did not lock it in right. It is a beautiful looking print. I have it on display in my dining room.

I've had to exclude one part of the print and reprint that part later. Yep, this is 3d printing and anyone might expect that on every print. Very nice model! Thanks
