Wobbly Ghosts are a one piece print with an internal spring. After the designed in support (necessary to stop the spring 'springing' during printing) has been removed they sit slightly above the surface they are sitting on and... wobble.
There are two types of Wobbly Ghost. One has arms and the other doesn't. They both work in the same way. The print with arms just takes longer to print and uses a bit more filament. They look great printed with white, translucent and glow in the dark filament
Print with 3 shells and 75% infill to ensure the spring is strong... but it won't use a lot of filament as the design leaves most of the Wobbly Ghost hollow.
Great fun for Halloween or any time...
PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS AND LOOK AT THE IMAGES BEFORE PRINTING

3 Shells / 75% infill to make the spring strong
Raft is recommended. The small amount of support required has been (and needs to be) designed in.. Refer to the images for removal instructions.
Print with 3 shells and 75% infill to makes the spring strong and 'springy,. Works great with PLA (printed on a Replicator 2 and 5th Generation Replicator).
Refer to the images for support removal details.
Remove the raft carefully so you don't damage the spring that will have printed up the centre of the 'Wobbly Ghost'. Next, remove the outer ring of support around the base of the Wobbly Ghost. This should crack away without much force. Next, push some scissors up the centre of the Wobbly Ghost (refer images) and gently crack/cut away the centre spring support. You will need to wriggle it around a bit to get it out but once removed the spring should move up and down freely and the Wobbly Ghost will... wobble!l
