Description

This is my own work, originally uploaded to Printables.

 

This model was originally designed for the Jointed Figures contest on Printables. This snap-fit model starts as a one-inch cube and flips inside out to reveal a cute, spiderlike robot.

 

Instructions

The 3MF file has all the parts laid out in one file, or you can print individual parts as desired. You'll need one cube body, two root joints, and four each of the legs and feet. Parts are designed to print without supports, but a brim can help with adhesion on the small parts.

Recommended print settings

Material

PETG, ABS, or ASA for best results

PLA is okay, but the ball joints will loosen over time.

Layer height0.15mm (first layer 0.2mm)
Infill10-20% rectilinear
First layer speedSLOW - 25% of default (at least for small parts)
SupportsNone
Brim

As needed - small parts only

A brim may interfere with the print-in-place hinges of the cube body.

Additional settings✅ Print external perimeters first

Once the parts are printed, assemble them as shown in the video below. All parts should snap-fit into place, no glue needed. This video also shows how to pack Little Cube Guy into its cube form, then transform it into spider form.

Cute model! Printed easy, had to reprint a couple of the legs after. But I think my PETG was a little wet, and so didn't come out as smooth as can be

Adorable, works well, a bit finicky to put the leg holders in, but otherwise awesome: need to get cute petg colors to print a little army of these

The parts with the two ball joints that goes into the cube was a bit hard to insert. One broke. The other one kind of fitted but i had to bend it and then glue it. Polyterra lava red
