The mandibles and legs are around 35% too large. You will need to scale them down.

entirely possible, nfi how

Gorgeous process! Thank you


May I have one ant assembly model file?

Nfi what that is sorry

When I print, the legs seeem impossibly large an their articulatios not obvious, Help?

theyre not articulated, and exporting them to some sort of relative size is outside my present skillset.

i'm fairly sure that isn't helpful but it's all I've got ^^

Gambatte ya

Thank you for putting the time lapse of making this, that was amazing. I couldn't believe you actually included striae in the model and I nearly lost it when you started making palps! Palps! Furthermore, you have an amazing eye for detail.

I am officially going to stop stalling building my 3D printer so I can make this.

you flatter me too much, thankyou.

I found that when this prints out that it's very brittle at the antennas and legs on the body. Is it possible to get the body broken up into more pieces so I can print them into a larger size so they aren't as brittle.

I hit a similar issue myself.

I'm just not experienced enough with printing i think, to know where to make those cuts

I would cut it right before the thorax not at the small part but at the big chunky part between the thorax and main body kind of cut that section in half then I would cut it right after the neck part way up the body. That should chuck it out a little better. At least that is what I would do. I am not to experience with using cad software myself.
