This is developed to study foldable wing structure for dragon.

it's inpired by beautiful Dragonology by Mag-net (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2671240)
and mostly take reference from Skyrim dragons.
articulation design trait was inherited from my other two dragons.

it small and probably difficult to make as well experimental wing. due to it's small size, some of joints are easy to pop out from soket. try at your risk

Feb 10 , 2018 // Replace files which most of fliped mesh in the ball removed and edit for less stress to the ball.

SET 01
SET 02 : Tails

Wing Cutting Frame 3: fourth try of wing system
No Brim, raft, 20 infiil, No filling at bottom and top. Put lowst cost setting as possible, once you make cutted wing fabric, it will become useless.

Other parts are mostly for repair and to build it one by one.

Neck and Tails did not have engraved part numbers. please careful not to be confused.

How I Designed This

it was hard to made. after i made set of wing after 4th try i was almost depleted any idea for body dispite take reference and ideas from other models

tail is quite short as it reach actual Limit of downsizing ball joint before unable to properly working as ball joints. if not those limit i would like to make tail twice time longer than now.

Tail tip and feet are easy to pop out.

Set of wing alone probably could use in my first articulated dragoness after configure ball and soket size of Wing 001, but i have no plan to doing that.

Holly crap man!.... why is my printer not working?!? I need to rpint this.... i need to fix that bloody printer.

I printed the first set, and every time I either remove some supports or try and put two parts together, the ball joint breaks off. I think I should print one piece at a time at a much larger scale and that might help, but do you have any suggestions for printing or assembly that would make this go smoother?

Can i ask you link imeage that how the ball was destroyed? i have certain suspect that may cause broken off of the ball. there was filiped mesh inside of the ball that originally intended forced fill the ball as you can see in slicer preview, but i think it intead cause weakend of the ball which i was did not experience of it when i build model part by part.

I am sincerely sorry for your waste of material and time, i will trying to fix it.

Totally okay about the material and time; I knew it was a risky print for my rig.

Unfortunately, I don't have a image for you because I trashed the failed parts. The balls just snapped off at the skinny end though.

I think printing at a larger scale might be a big help for me, though I also welcome any advice on putting together ball-jointed prints. I've only succeeded at two (both pangolins) and have failed to print or assemble a few others. I couldn't seem to find assembly advice in a google search.

hi =) Awesome design,
one thing i've seen, on Set 1, the Dragon head seems to have problems once it's sliced (missing lines at the height of the eyes) any ideas how to fix that?

When i checked that parts i found that inner eye soket was open and not capped and welded, i have upload fixed and replace now. hopefully, it shall be fine. but not sure.

Thank you for point out, i was dosen't notice in my slicer .

Wow! Looks incredible. What you did with the wings is really great... and you made a template for cutting the fabric!

And your Dragonology is incredible too. after i made this one i started build your own dragon to overcome base deformation trouble and welding parts because your dragon is too pretty to not to print :)

Thank you!

Another amazing model! Thanks for sharing!

Very clever wing design. I've been trying something similar but haven't gotten good results. Yours looke quite good.
Are the wing bone halves just snapped together or are they glued?

Snap together first but that was not enough, so i had apply gule a bit on Wing limb A,B,C Snap fit point.

Thank you!
