I can’t get enough of these articulated animals and wanted to try making one. I don’t have much experience 3D modeling, but managed to hack this out in Tinkercad. My daughter is floored by the idea that we can contribute something back to Thingiverse and that people all over the world can now print this. If you make one, please post a make!

UPDATE: Featured! This is crazy! I told my daughter and she’s as blown away as I am. I told her we won all the Internet points and she asked (bouncing up and down, clapping her hands), “Where can we spend them?!” XD
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!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
