The rhino is a gift. It was designed as a paper model 3 years ago. My wife was fond of it so much. As a result, I spent few days modifying its construction, making it in palm size, and printed it out for her. She was smiling with surprised and pleased when receiving it which made me feel perfectly satisfied. Thus, I decided to share this stl, and I wish it could be sent as a present for the one you love.

Can you share Running Rhino?

Made one a while ago and loved it.

Very good design. made it and it turned out awesome. the tail took me a minute to snap down. but it did and moves freely

Such a great design! This is what finally convinced my wife that getting a3d printer wasn't such a bad idea. Printed one for her in white PLA at 90% infill with support. It came out perfect. At first I thought I broke the tail but soon realized it is made to pivot! My wife loved it. His name is Ollie, the office rhinocerous. Of course we immediately had to print another in pink and name her Molly. Super fun! Thanks for this!

太屌了,居然會跑 ~

This is an amazing thing...he just makes me smile and smile. I think it prints best in solid color, be it white or whatever. I used Natural and some features are lost. The Formosan Black Bear has cool eyes...maybe Rhino could use some too? I would up printing the hind legs at 75% infill due to breakage and the joint. Perhaps improves center of gravity as well. Looking forward to more of your work!

Oh, one more thing: in case no one noticed, the tail pivots once excess material is removed. This makes Rhino even cuter.

Thank you for your comments, I have a new design for the rhino to see the movie, I hope you will like it.


Will the legs move after printing?

Sure,they can move after they are built up.

I love this Rhino. It's a great model and it assembles really nicely. I also thought it could use some really beefy arms to clobber bad guys with so I added some here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:789399

Hi, I made a remix that is a bit easier to print (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:767177) but I just noticed you flagged this as "no derivatives." Do you want me to take my version down?

EZ-Print Rhino

Hi there, I like your remix, Would it be possible to move the head and other big parts onto two separate plates as i would like to print it as big as I can?
Thanking you in advance



when trying to print the legs the file doesn't lay down a pattern ring, just tries to immediately start printwaring the leg which fails because the material hasn't warmed out yet. can you add those test rings to the files?

When .STL loaded into my software, the items are tiny and don't look anything like the pictures. Any Suggestions?

Nice thing! Only the rhino.stl does not seem to have the bottom sides aligned...

There are no completely flat sides for the legs. You will have to use supports or cut the protruding section.

Ah thanks, that's it.

this is one of the cutest thing iv'e seen, coming up right after my dog.

Very cute rhino design! :)
