Hatchbox white, Inland blue PLA
white and blue
I failed to READ THE INSTRUCTIONS ALL THE WAY FIRST (stupid mistake on my part) and printed the wrong version for the material I was using (PLA rather than ABS). The inevitable result of the pieces not staying together happened, but I found a solution. I place two rubber bands around 3 pieces down the entire length to keep it together, I placed these in the middle on either side of the dorsal band/spike and now it stays together nicely and even has a nice springy articulation.
