Hi, I'm Max Glenister.

This website is a collection of all of the things I've been doing with my 3D Printer.

You'll find lots of examples of badly modelled things, poorly printed things, and a lot of wasted plastic!

Print in Place Elephant

I’m enjoying printing some great models from Thingiverse.

This little elephant is an articulated print-in-place model. It prints in one piece, and then the legs sort of snap to become moveable.

I printed mine on a raft to help with the wonky bed calibration that I’ve got, and at a smaller scale to print it faster. Due to the scale the elephants trunk snapped off when removing the raft.

The print is a lot smoother in real life than in the photos, with the individual layers almost imperceptible to touch.

Here’s the model on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:257911
