Strandbeest

Whenever someone on Thingiverse says that something is "unprintable", I get an uncontrollable urge to prove them wrong...

It will do the walking motion if you pick it up and turn the crankshaft from both ends. The crankpins are way too floppy to have it actually walk on its own by driving it from one end, though. Needs a much more rigid crankshaft design. Makes a nice sculpture, though :)

Very nice. I, too, love those animals. I hear they're easy to catch if you can find one!

Hmm, I am thinking when things slow down I'll be able to catch one with my 3D printer trap.
