After experimenting with different ideas I have found a solution using elastic bungee cord passed through the hollow center of each tentacle from end too end and stretched lightly. This keeps a pressure on all joints and avoids loose and floppy movement. It greatly reduces the precision needed. To hold the bungee at each end I used hot glue in the last joint at each end.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
