OhMyGerd I just finally noticed that you used the Kraken_2 design for this!!! Very Nice!

Attempt one:
I tried using my pink ABS plastic for the octopus but it wouldn't stick to the plate, I heated the plate and nozzle to the specific temperatures. So I had to switch back to my black plastic that came with the printer.

Attempt two:
I accidentally turned the raft on and. when it started printing the first parts i realized it probably wouldn't print so i stopped the printer and turned the raft off. fingers crossed attempt three goes well.

Attempt three:
PERFECT!

Dear Julia,
Just found your fork/spoon riders.Wow wow wow! Simple but genius. Definitely gonna print some!
I have some ideas for other riders. Would you be prepared to share the specifications of the 'hole' to make the Tinkercad job more easy?
P.S. Would be cool to design a rider creature that actually holds the shaft like it's flying on a broom :)

Hi, and thanks for your comments! The STL for the hole is included in the files section, or you can just un-group any of the designs on Tinkercad to get it out.

lol THEY JUST BLEW MY MIND!!!!! pretty cool by the way

Lol! You used my Patrick Starfish as a spoonrider! :P excellent haha!!

Yes - I did include it in my list of Sources/attributions, but there's a bug in Thingiverse that prevents you from getting past the first page of displayed sources. I've reported it to MB and they say they're working on it.

We need fork riders to duel the knife riders, what fun for kids. darth vader vs yoda!

Oh yeah, I need to do a Darth...

10 cents apiece at my local church thrift store :)

Gah, I'm going to have to buy more spoons!

Added Jesus and Buddha.

My kid will love these. Thanks
