We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This model was created in Autodesk 123D Creature for iPad and was one of our first experiments with a multi-legged beast. I have managed to print him in various orientations but generally find turning on supports in MakerWare and printing him on his back works best. I am including a Zup version as well in case anyone finds it helpful.

For best results print with supports enabled and use the inverted file below (Autodesk_123D_Creature_Thundercrab.stl).
All of the creatures we upload have been created within the 123D Creature App on iPad and will be available for download and editing from within the in-app Creature community. So if you want to add some additional arms or legs, play with posing or change the proportions of any of these files just head on over to the App Store and download the App today! Anything you create in 123D Creature can be exported as an OBJ file using the mesh export option for easy import into MakerWare.
