Articulated Slug #3DPrinting #3DThursday

8ran shared this project on Thingiverse!

So my kids cut the legs off one of my articulated bugs (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2817607) and it actually looked pretty cool. So I modded the bug… into a slug 😀

Prints fine hollow, but 100% infill gives it a realistic weight.

Tip for removing from your printer: Stick a putty knife between two body segments and twist it. This should be enough to pop them loose.

UPDATE #1: There is now a file with a slightly rounded tail – safer for youger kids 😉

UPDATE #2: WuffyUnikitty designed a clip-on snail shell for these little guys. Check it out!

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!
