Flying Squirrel

Our 3D printer (a stretched Mendel Max) has recently got to the point where it works. To test this we ended up printing a selection of squirrels (currently posing on our webcam). We started with the medium sized white squirrel, then printed the large (7″) blue one to test the limits of our printer.

I also recently completed a Crazyflie quadcopter. So I decided I needed to combine the two. Unfortunately the Crazyflie wasn’t strong enough to lift it.

The solution was to print a smaller squirrel (in green). This proves our printer can print both large and small things, but more importantly we have a flying squirrrel!
