Yo Cerberus,

as I expected... LayWood is the best material for a Tarantula of other big spider. See my recent make (50204).
Thanks again for the design.
If you have time spare, I would like to see your attempt to design a printable cricket (in scale to the spider), so he can prey on it ... :-)
rgrds Thomas

I made a cricket, I did not scale it though.
just load in the spider in your slicer, and get an idea on the size,
then load in the cricket and adjust it as desired.


Yo Cerberus,
I showed the spider Yuck to my friend who has 7 real spiders like tarantula and so on.
He loved the print but pointed out that the arachnid species consists of 2 parts: the head-chest and the backside. Yours has too now, however.... In real life, all legs origin from the first part the head-chest part. So it drags the other body part along.

I know you want to be close to nature and you like comments, so ..........

Regards Thomas

Yo Cerberus,
as you can spot, I have printed this 'natural' version of your spider series.
It has great texture. I added a single layer raft again, to prevent legs from tipping over on the go.
I think I can improve even by lowering top layer temperatures at the leg joints, but the body is ok, no holes present.
Thanks again for this great design.

thanks for printing and posting the pic!

Hello Cerberus. Sorry to contact you this way, but I was wondering if you'd be willing to do a talk or videochat to the Freeside Atlanta hackerspace during our 3D design and Printing workshop (February 9th). You have published a number of popular downloads and we would love to hear more about your design process. Hit me up off list if you are interested; sorry if I'm being a bother.

sorry, i don't see the old mail user function in thingiverse.
drop me a mail at [email protected]

Sure, no bother at all.
I am glad to share what I can,

I'll send you a mail.

Great again.
May be my wife won"t allow this in the livingroom :-)

yeah If made in brown or black, given a nice magnet on the bottom
and strategically placed. It could be scarey.

Your models are just awesome. Thanks so much for sharing them.

Well thanks!
I hope sharing them helps make others
1) share their stuff too
2) with ideas to make their own creations (i know I get lots of ideas from what i see others do on here.)
3) decide to get involved in 3d printing.
4) occasionally make someone smile or laugh.
3d printing is fun for me, I know lots of folks take it very seriously, which is fine too,
but my aim is to make fun stuff that I enjoy and hopefully others do as well.
As always I appreciated all comments and suggestions.
the positive ones are always great to hear,
the suggestions/criticism also help to make me a better artist/craftsman/modeler (take your pick).
