A model based on Agatha's little Clank from the Girl Genius webcomic (http://girlgeniusonline.com/).
It has posable arms and legs. The model's eye can be positioned to look in various directions. Finally, the winding knob on the top will turn. With a little practice, you should be able to stand the little clank.
I've marked it as non-commercial because the original concept is not mine, and I think the creators of Girl Genius should get a say in commercial applications.
The clank-limbs.stl file should be printed with 0.30mm thickness, 1 shell, and 60% infill.
All other plates are printed with 0.30mm thickness, 2 shells, and 35% infill.
Assembly of the model is not 100% obvious until you've done it once. Print all of the
pieces and clean up the parts, if necessary.
- From the clank-limbs.stl, take the round shoulder objects and the arms (long rectangles
pinchers on the end).
- Cut two pieces of 3mm filament a little less than 1cm long.
- Apply a small amount of acetone or glue to the filament and the openings on the arm and
- Use the filament to attach the shoulder to the arm.
- Repeat for the other arm.
- Carefully smooth out any droopy stuff in the cavity in the back piece.
- Place the flat part of the eye (the part without the hole) in the cavity in back piece.
- Push the front piece on over the eye until the eye snaps into the front piece and the
back and front are flat together.
- Separate the back and front.
- Place the cone part of the stem into the cavity in the top of the back.
- Brush acetone or glue on the flat portions of the back and front. Be careful not to
get any on or too close to the eye or stem.
- Line up the front and back. Stick them together and hold until the joint sets.
- Brush a little acetone or glue around the joint being careful not to get any on the
stem or into the gaps where the arms and legs go.
- After everything is dry, snap the arms and legs into the appropriate holes.
For a little nicer effect, paint the eye before assembling the clank.
