One of those geometric snake things. I believe some people know it as Rubik's Twist.


  • Fully Printable in one go.
  • Functional hinges.
  • Clicks into 90 degree angles.
  • Rounded corners to have it go more smoothly.

Took me 3 hours to print on the Makerbot Replicator.

I've added the files for a 2 colour version using dual extrusion (named Black and White).

This thing was made with Tinkercad. Edit it online https://tinkercad.com/things/9snwCIbBetx


Just print.

When you're done, you should be able to move the hinges.

If you're using dual extrusion for two colours use the "Black" and "White" files to merge them.

Printed this this weekend. Amazing, how did you do it. The only problem is the joints are a bit loose and don't quite lock into place like I remember them in the past. Maybe my filament diameter is off.

Robo - in reply to cymon

Try printing it smaller , like 1.8 or 1.5 of the original size, in my case the joints became fused. Also remember the original had a nylon thread holding the pieces together. That is in theory a better way to produce this product.

cymon - in reply to Robo

1.8 and 1.5 are BIGGER thanthe original size. Do you mean .8 or .5, 80% or 50% respectively? Hopefully someone else will see this comment before they try. I'd like to know if it works.

Is this printable on a printer? Have you left enough clearance?

Robo - in reply to deeeep

Yes, check the photo's I've added. Have fun!

Robo - in reply to deeeep

Yes, I printed it on a Makerbot Replicator. Works much better than my previous attempt.
