Snowstorm's Cool Pal Has Swooped in for the 2024 New Year

Snowstorm's Cool Pal Has Swooped in for the 2024 New Year

Cold Spell saw how much attention Snowstorm was getting and figured he'd get in on the action as well. 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 With each design I try to push myself to learn something new and try out some different techniques. Snowstorm allowed me to experiment with a different aesthetic style, legs that lock into two main positions, and making longer models that have more variation in body size throughout the length of the model. Building on that, Cold Spell gave me the opportunity to experiment with incorporating higher detail, small-scale textures into the segments. I'm eager to hear how everyone likes the new design. Thanks for your support! Happy New Year!


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

Deep in the heart of winter's grasp, where icy tempests moan and rasp, There dwells a dragon fierce and grand, the ruler of the snowy land. With scales that shimmer like the dawn, and breath as cold as winter's yawn, The frigid forces all take form, in movements of a great Snowstorm!

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

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

Tight Tolerance Snowstorm: https://than.gs/m/977190 Medium Tolerance Snowstorm: https://than.gs/m/977196 Loose Tolerance Snowstorm: https://than.gs/m/977202

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.
