The Scissor Snake

The Scissor Snake 3D print model


The Scissor Snake

The "Scissor Snake" is a fun 3D printed toy. It is easy to print without support; the "Scissor Snake" comes off the build plate assembled and ready to use. Its motion is incredibly smooth, resulting in a very precise, fast, durable and fun remote grabber. Kid tested. Guaranteed to provide many hours of fun for kids of all ages.

The design uses an exclusive, support-less crossover bearing, engineered for this project. The engineered cross-over bearing further enhance strength and lifting ability by interlocking with the frame when fully extended under load, causing the frame to become rigid, thereby reducing stress on the bearing pivots. This results in a strong and durable toy cable of lifting many times its own weight.

Instructions Print at 100% scale, using 30% to 50% in-fill, no support, at 0.2mm layer height. The "Scissor Snake" is designed to print at 100% scale on wide range of 3D printers. However, if the print comes out looser than you'd like, you can reduce the scale by 5 to 10%; this will produce tighter joints. If the print come out too tight, increase the scale by 5 to 10%; this will produce looser joints. Normally this is not necessary. Otherwise, for best results, don't change the scale of the model.
