Pull-String Nutcracker Ornament

3D model description

This Pull-String Nutcracker Ornament features completely movable arms and legs, with just a pull of a string, the arms and legs fly up!

The creative and intricate design prints easily on a 3D printer and people will be amazed when this beautiful and fun ornament is seen hanging on a tree.

The model is completely functional, only needing a few pieces of string to pull it together.

All models were made on SolidWorks 2013

3D printing settings

This model was printed on a Prusa i3 with 3mm PLA filament

 Printing Instructions:  

-I used slight rectilinear infill for all pieces- it helps keep the tops nice and clean, but any infill will work fine.

-All objects print laying down, minimal bridging.

-The head will need support material for the peg hole, but other than that there is no need for any support material

-Strings can be cut to length and tied together at the bottom

 Assembly Instructions:  

-Watch the video that is included, it explains things very well.

-String is tied through the small holes in each arm and leg.

-The pegs on the body correspond to the large holes on the arms and legs.

-The strings are wound down through the center of the body

-The top body is glued to each round peg, not the head peg.

Enjoy your movable Nutcracker!
