I saw this toy in Landskrona museum sweden. It was i guess around 100 years old. I liked it and made this design. It is not the same with the toy in museum, this is quite a new design. But everything is tested and simulated in solidworks. It will run nice.


I'm updating this design from time to time, visit http://www.endtas.com/mechanical-horse-toy/#more-248 for the latest STL files.


front and rear legs are made of identical parts, just as the front and rear axles & wheels. metal-plastic pins or screws would be needed to assemble moving parts together.

I've made some modifications to make model easier to print (for some printers at least); in version 2, axes and wheels are separate and need assembly, they are one piece in version 1. All wheels are identical as are the front and rear axles.

if you need similar (or not) 3d models and simulations or product designs, contact me.

challenge to print yes, but this Design is superb! Very well done! I will post a picture of my 1.5 scale ratio horse.
The trick I have found to work best is printing with Raft and support everywhere for the intrinsic details -

Again, a big thank you Hobby Man for sharing this design.

P.S.: I am printing 3 copies for my daughter and my 2 nieces - sooo cool.

challenge to print indeed!

I am using my library, which will print it on their new 3D printer. Since they will be printing it, they need to be told how much larger or smaller to make it. I want 1:12 scale if possible.

Scale, please! Would love to make one for my dollhouse!

The scale of the print should be changeable on the printer software you use.
other than this, how can i help?

So, two horses were out flying and one horse suddenly turns his head to the other and says: - "Dude, horses can't fly."

A man and a horse walks into a bar. The horse gets pissed and falls over, man slaps what he owes on the counter, prepares to leave, when the Barkeep goes: "Oi! You can't leave that laying there!" Man says: - "It's a horse, not a lion." (bonus point on movie-reference btw)

Any way we could get the solidworks assembly/parts? Looks like a couple of things are a little unprintable (horse body and wheels/axel). Or could at least be made a little more print friendly.

So a pony walks into a bar and orders a tea with lemon. The bartender says, "Don't you want something a little stronger? Whiskey, maybe?"

And the pony says, "No thanks, I'm just a little hoarse."

Thanks! I'll be here all week. Try the veal.

A horse walks into a restaurant and orders a Coke and the waitress says, "Is Pepsi okay?" the horse replies "Neigh"
