I got this as a DXF file off the net quite a few years ago. Don't know where I got it exactly.

Also, I don't have a build diagram for it so therefore it's a puzzle.

My wife did manage to figure out how it fits together. The parts we're unsure of is the little part on the end of the tail (df5.stl) and the two little round parts (df1 x2.stl). So we left out these two round parts


I printed all parts with NO raft so they could be smooth both sides.

Some parts have the number required in the filename i.e. x6 means part must be printed 6 times.

After printing the little "connection" slots might need slight cleaning up with a blade for parts to fit together properly. So each part must be test fitted and cleaned as necessary but only to the point where they still fit together tightly.

Do you still have the original DXF file? I have a laser cutter but no 3D printer :)

Where did you get that color plastic? I haven't seen that for sale anywhere?


Looks a lot like dino-girl's uploads... you might like those too.

Thanks. I had a look and you were right. I do like those too. Have already downloaded most and will be converting the DXF files to Solidworks parts files.
