3D model description

We created this cute little articulated elephant last month for our friends in Nantes, at IRT Jules Verne (France).

Their city is well known for their giant puppets. The most famous one is a huge robotic elephant, the size of a building.

Since they bought a lot of material from le FabShop, including a ton of MakerBots, our creative director, Samuel N. Bernier designed this little toy to be used as a goodie.

It had a great success, so we decided to share it with you.

3D printing settings

You can download two files for two different size :
XL size (length : 275 mm)
XS size (length : 90 mm)
Can be printed with 0 infill if you want

The Z resolution we used is 0,2. (MakerBot's standard setting)

We used MakerBot's Pumpkin orange PLA.

  • 3D file format: STL



We are designers, makers, inventors, engineers and artists working together for an amazing 3D printed future.

This needs support between legs and body. there are overhangs there which are printed in mid air.

Both left legs start to print too late. The right legs start printing first, then after some layers the printer (Ultimaker 2) tries to start printing the left ones – in the air. Does not work for us :(
