There is a cutaway view in the thing files called cutaway view.pdf showing how the model goes together.
I printed the base sections vertically to minimize support and print time. The tallest one is 148mm. This is the maximum height I can print with my FlashForge Creator Pro with glass bed.
There are 3 cams that have to be placed on the quarter inch rod drive shaft such that they rest directly under the push rods from the reindeer and sleigh. Each cam needs to have a nut on either side to hold it in place and keep it locked to the drive shaft. When assembling, I recommend putting a drop of super glue on the nuts that hold the cams in place once they are positioned. Also, it is probably a nicer effect if the cams are offset from each other so the deer and sleigh are bobbing up and down slightly out of sych with each other.
Because Santa and the bag of toys have details in relief to make painting easier, I have made them with mirror images that will need to be glued together. This way they can lay flat on the print bed. Just glue them together after printing and painting.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
