When was the last time you needed a manikin head? Probably yesterday. Here's your fix! We used Autodesk's 123D Make to turn a solid CAD model into cross-sectional lines for the DIWire to bend. For our joinery, we used some 3D printed clips to assemble the sections into a functional volume. Scroll through our instructable and try it for yourself. Bend and assemble a manikin head at home or create your own cross-sectional Bendable and share it with us!

Step 1: Gather the Necessary Materials and Tools

Step 2: Start With a Solid Model in 123D Make

Step 3: Slice

Use "Interlocked Slices" to split your volume into the sections you'd like.

Step 4: Export

Select "Get Plans" and save them as a DXF.

Step 5: Double Check the Files

Step 6: Bend the Cross-Sections

Step 7: Add Clips

Step 8: Enjoy

Thanks for share
<p>good job </p>
where'd u get the clips?
<p>The clips were 3D printed on a Stratasys Dimension. If you would like to make your own, you can download the necessary files by clicking on the link located in the first paragraph of this instructable.</p>
