A basic rod style puppet to renact your favorite makerbot adventures.

You have the choice of any head listed below.

I will update with completed picture soon.

There is room for improvement, what ideas do other people have?


Print each .stl file. Cut 2 pieces of 3/8" wooden dowel to be 6" long.
One dowel will be the handle, the other will be the control rod for the head.
Put one end of the handle in the hole in the torso that does NOT go all the way thru. Use some Hot Glue to hold it in place.
Sand a flat face on the top 2" of the head control rod
Print one of the head files. For Bre choose the "breclosed.stl". For Unfold's head choose "3smoreUpsDown.stl"
Hot glue the head to the control rod.
Put the Head control rod thru the torso.
Hot glue the other end of the control rod into the 'Head Handle'.
Hot glue a 1/4" dowel rod into the hole on each hand piece.

Make some clothes for your puppet and you are good to go!
