Thanks for stopping by and checking out my designs!

I'm designing a selection of bio-inspired, articulated, and/or cursed models.

My Snap-Flex models incorporate a special joint that allows you to SNAP the segments into place to lock them and SNAP them back out to flex freely. Fantastic for fidgeting and ASMR fun.

If you're willing to give me a bit of feedback, please let me know how you like the models here

Print-In-Place, No Supports, Articulating Fidget Toy

Tight Tolerance

Looks like the cat's out of the bag. When you're feeling frisky or need a quick paws from the hassles of everyday life, reach for your purr-fect pocket pal.

Snappy Cat is the newest playful pet on the prowl in the 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.

Snappy Cat is the fourth creation in a series of Snap-Flex models by Mimetics 3D, and it's available for free for a limited time.

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 Tight tolerance model. For the other tolerances, please check out the other versions of the model below:

Medium Tolerance Snappy Cat: https://than.gs/m/940289 Loose Tolerance Snappy Cat: https://than.gs/m/940290

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

Other Models: If you like Snappy Cat, be sure to check out its more mystical, magical twin: Witch Hat Snappy Cat:

Tight Tolerance Witch Hat Snappy Cat: https://than.gs/m/940295 Medium Tolerance Witch Hat Snappy Cat: https://than.gs/m/940296 Loose Tolerance Witch Hat Snappy Cat: https://than.gs/m/940297

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.

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 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. 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.
