Be very careful when removing from print bed, I broke a little attachment. I just glued it back. I printed Elephant_3D_Printed.stl in PLA and wonder if the names are mix up. For PLA I would need more material to be less brittle so print the one call flexible. thanks anyway! it's nice!

Just printed this thanks to Veritasium's video. Thank you for sharing this. The print and move worked great here is the settings I used:
Printer: Ender 3
Slicer: Cura 3.6
Layer Height: 0.15mm
Infill: 25% (Grid)
Speed: 60mm/s
Wonderful informative video and thank you for sharing the designs.

Great info Ashley, but what filament type and brand did you use?

I really appreciate this upload! Ordered material from Mcmaster to christen my home brew cnc!

Really love what you guys are uploading. Also the Video with Veritasium was really enlightening.
Thanks for uploading all these amazing models!

Will the performance change if i scaled this to 150% ? :)

No, it shouldn't change the performance. However, if the flexures become too thick (also depends on the material) then they will yield and the joint location will be changed slightly.

Should work fine.

I just printed it at 1600% (in the Z-axis only): https://youtu.be/iAVV_7k79ZI
