What to print for the day – Spider Prank Box

Slicing:

The slicer I use is Creality Slicer 4.8.2. The print size was set to 100% to be perfectly fit to hold in one hand as described. I printed the spider at 15% infill which later proved to be risky leaving the legs hollow (2 legs were broken when removing the spider from the plate). To avoid uneven surfaces at the bottom and string, I added supports below the legs.

Printing:

I decided to print the whole project on one of our most reliable printers – Sermoon-D1. Everything went smooth and clean except I broke 2 legs when removing the spider from the build plate violently. That’s why I highly recommend increasing the infill of the spider from 15% to at least 25%.

Assembling

Before assembling the box, the spider was painted according to a picture of a poisonous-like wolf spider. Though my colleagues think the coloring may fit better on a crab. It only takes 5 steps to assemble the whole box.

1. firstly insert the stick into the back hole of the spider

2. insert the other tail of the stick into a hole in the middle of the gear (remove the support if exists)

3. Attach the gear and main body of the box

4. Assemble the side of the box

5. Pull the spider out of the box and close the top cover
