Wiggly Snake/Worm - bends both ways by idea_beans Jan 2, 2013

Description

Loved the original snake file created by Zomboe. Thought I would modify the design slightly to make the snake bend both ways, by alternating the joiners between each fin 90 degrees.

Yep all printed in one piece with minimum support! If you use nylon or flexible material, the snakes wiggle very well without snapping. I tried a few diffent materials and some broke in half as soon as I removed the supports. :)
Love it! I can't believe these actually print in one piece!

Instructions

I printed it on UP! Plus printer - 0.3mm, 10 degree support, fast speed. Took about 20 min.

Wiggly Snake V1 - flat joiners between the fins, alternating at 90 degrees.

Wiggly Snake V2 - a central axis at 1.6mm diameter. This may be more flexiable than V1 but BREAKS MORE EASILY!!
