Boy O Boy was this Mantis a challenge, I thought she was done 7 iterations ago. But I think I have got her tuned in just right for a nice easy Print.
The Praying Mantis is such a cool creature i just had to make one. As im sure you are aware it is a brutal beast that can slay nearly every foe it incounters including her mates. If the mantis wieghed 60 pounds im sure we would all be in trouble.
There are supports needed, and the joints can be a little fussy when it comes to scaling.
All parts are in one file for your convience and you sould be able to print in one go. Provived your build plate is at least 140mm x 140mm
For assembly instructions the pictures i uploaded should provide you with enough detail for you to click it together.
I used Sculptris and Tinkercad for the design and printed it on my Trusty FlashForge Finder. I used wxy silver black pla filament for the print.
Thanks so much for checking her out. She and her sisters will be defending my gardens from the evil japeneae beetles this summer.
Please upload your pics, and tips are always appreciated but never required.
