Keychain Witch Hat Snappy Cat - (Snap-Flex: Medium Tightness Joint)by
Print-In-Place, No Supports, Articulating Fidget Toy
Includes 3 model variations for different keychain ring placements
The cauldron is bubbling, the potions are pouring, and this mystical kitty is up to no good. With a twitch of its nose and a flick of its paws it weaves magical spells that defy natures laws.
As the time slips away through a long boring day you may find that your fingers are growing quite bored. You may reach for a widget but it doesn't quite fidget like the fun little friend in your pocket that's stored.
So put that phone away and delightfully play with this witchy and whiskered, fun companion that can only be known by its true name alone, and that moniker is the Witch Hat Snappy Cat.
Witch Hat Snappy Cat is the newest playful pet on the prowl in the Snap-Flex collection. Snappy Cat is the fourth creation in a series of Snap-Flex models by Mimetics 3D, and is available for free for a limited time.
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.
Snap-Flex Collection: This articulated fidget toy integrates the Mimetics 3D "Snap-Flex" joint. This allows Snappy Cat 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 for Snappy Cat to ensure that you get the best fitting, most satisfying “SNAP” with each of your prints.
This is the Medium tolerance model.
Please try out each to see what works best for you, and let me know which version you prefer!
Make sure to revisit us frequently for more thrilling Snap-Flex models to come. We're eager to hear your feedback and collaborate on refining this model going forward.
Print Settings: 0.2mm Layer Height 3 Wall Loops 3 Top Shell Layers No Supports, Print-In-Place at 100% scale. Going any smaller may disable the Snap-Flex joint.
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.
Recommended Types of FIlament: Recommended: PLA+ or PLA Avoid: Silk PLA
Untested: PETG, ABS, ASA, Resin, etc.
I recommend you use regular PLA or PLA+. ABS might be even better, but I haven't tried it yet.
Silk PLA is a bit softer and may not click as nicely. I'd also be more concerned about silk PLA holding up to the wear and tear. 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.
