Within the land of winter's chill, where all the air grows sharp and still, There lurks a dragon, bold and sly, beneath the frosty, starlit sky. All those who glance upon his face, are frozen still right in their place. A sight so fair in frigid night, casts shivers in the moon's soft light.

With breath like wisps of Arctic air, he dances with a graceful flair, Glides gently over snowy plains, and streaks the sky with frosty veins. Caught in his wake, the world transforms; his presence calms the icy storms. All those who witness feel the swell, the charming chill of a Cold Spell!

Cold Spell is happy to swoop into town just in time to celebrate the 2024 New Year!

The winter dragons aren't the only fun, articulated holiday friends coming to town for Christmas this year. You can find other flying friends with Happy Lil Reindeer & Sleigh: https://than.gs/m/970609

Cold Spell is the 13th creation in a series of Snap-Flex models by Mimetics 3D, and is available for free for a limited time.

Snap-Flex Collection: This articulated fidget toy integrates the Mimetics 3D "Snap-Flex" joint. This allows the model to both move smoothly, mimicking the fluid motion of living creatures, AND stabilize in a firm pose, providing a premium fidgeting experience.

Each SNAP will resonate as a symphony of satisfaction to your ears, confirming your masterful manipulations.

Snap-Flex Instructions: To Lock: Push Body Segments together To Unlock: Pull Body Segments Apart

Tolerance: To accommodate different printer settings and filaments, I’m uploading 3 different tolerance levels of this model to ensure that you get the best fitting, most satisfying “SNAP” with each of your prints.

This is the Loose tolerance model. For the other tolerances, please check out the other versions of the model below:

Tight Tolerance Cold Spell: https://than.gs/m/982109 Medium Tolerance Cold Spell: https://than.gs/m/982124 Loose Tolerance Cold Spell: https://than.gs/m/982144

Please try out each to see what works best for you, and let me know which version you prefer!

Make sure to revisit frequently for more thrilling Snap-Flex models to come. I'm eager to hear your feedback and collaborate on refining this model going forward.

This model is for personal use only. If you're interested in selling physical prints of this model, please subscribe to the Mimetics 3D Commercial Tier on Thangs.

Print Settings: 0.2mm Layer Height 3 Wall Loops 3 Top Shell Layers Good Bed Adhesion Required - Consider using glue stick or a brim

Suggested Material: PLA or PLA+ Note: Silk PLA is too weak to hold up to repeated use of the Snap-Flex joint. Use silks at your own risk

No Supports, Print-In-Place at 100% scale Printing any smaller may disable the Snap-Flex joint.

Printing larger than 100% will make the snap louder AND harder to pop, so be sure to do a shorter test print to make sure it's not TOO hard to snap into place.

These tolerances are TIGHT and you'll likely have to snap each segment a few times before it's loose enough to snap/unsnap easily. I recommend you use regular PLA or PLA+. ABS might be even better, but I haven't tried it yet.

If you print this in resin, please let me know how it turns out. I imagine you would need a more flexible/less stiff resin for it to work appropriately.
