This dragon was created by one of my 8th graders. =) I am giddy to see them actually producing stuff without any new instruction by me. =) If only this sucker could spit flames!


Printed 2 sets of back legs, 1 body and 1 set of wings. Glued it together with abs slurry. Everything is 5% infill. We did use support to get the tail to stay upright.

It was a ton of fun watching him use trial and error to get the design how he liked. Initially it was a one piece design. Gradually the idea of printing the parts came together. There was also some effort to create pegs for the legs and wings, but the slurry trick fit his timeline better.

Thank you! I've been looking for an easy dragon.

Sketchup. He had to do a lot of adjusting to make it work. Initial vision had curved legs and such... I tried to steer him away from components. Love when it is "really" their creation. I have 8 more kids working through the module now. =) Just like a box of chocolates... never know what your gonna get. =)

Cute dragon! What did he design it in?
