Here is Munchy and Snacky, the pod of hungry whales, descendents of Moby-Dick itself, that are about to grab a bag of snacks in your cupboards.


Print and feed them a bag of snacks, crisps, any bag... They will bitte it shut.

v2.0 is grabbier than v1.0. Enjoy.

Update: Pictures show the pod attacking the groceries cupboard last night.

Cute! I printed a bunch of v2_1 in different colors and materials.

Sometimes I find it a little bit difficult to slip them onto a bag, especially if it is not totally flat. Once you get it on a little bit, it slips on easily all the way. Maybe you could make that easier by angling up the upper "lip" a little bit near the end so the opening gets a bit bigger.


These designs have had their 3rd aniversary a few days ago.
Thanks for the tip.

What should I used to print this thing- PLA or ABS?
Thank you.

Either of them will do fine...

Anyone else having hole errors in Slic3r?

Can you print?

Slic3r doesn't get past the first layer :-S

I have uploaded v1.1 and v2.1 these should run through slic3r.
Thanks for letting me know of the issue.

Cool pic... Another cupboard beastie is born.

Thanks! I think the jaw is a little thin and at risk of snapping off. Maybe something with a more centered jawline would be more durable. Barracuda, anyone? :)

Have you tried printing them?

bbum - in reply to VGer

Yeah -- the whales are awesome! I now have a pod of whales and a school of barracuda in my closet.
