Step 1: Download and Print Out Your Own Sneaky Snake
BEFORE YOU CONTINUE GO TO STEP 3 AND THEN COME BACK
I have provided the file here already in STL format.
You have to take this file and put it in Cura to make it a GCODE.
Put this GCODE file onto a SD card.
put the SD Card into your Ultimaker and begin your 3D printing.
Step 2: Step 2: Construct Your Sneaky Snake
Method 1: String Method
-Take one long piece of string
-Line up the holes in each section
-Take the string through the first four wholes then along the bottom of snake to the next set of holes
-Repeat this set until the last holes
- cut and tie a knot in the string
Method 2: Screw Method
-Based on how big you printed your snake you should by 4 screws less than the circumference of each hole and slightly longer than your snake
- you need 8 washers that will fit these screws
-place screw through two section and put washers on top and bottom
-repeat for all holes
Step 3: WHAT NOT TO DO
After transferring your STL file to cura the snake may change size. Make sure you scale the snake down so you don't end up trying to print a 120 inch snake like we did.
