It looks like a scared cat jump :D

It's great but legs are very fragile. May be they should be remade to be printed as 3 parts with some self-locking patent.

Are the leg units falling out of the body, or are the legs breaking? If they are just falling out, just try a drop of superglue to hold them in. If they are breaking, try printing them a little slower.

Legs are breaking. But not during "correct usage" - it just can't survive my 2 years old daughter ;-)

thank you so much awesome my kids love it my son calls it a jumping spider going to be a good stocking stuffer this Christmas

Funny, I was thinking that myself that I should add 2 more legs and call it a jumping spider - much scarier for Halloween!

that would be cool i am just learning about 3d printing i have no clue how to make my own stuff lol

This little guy is great!
My son is going to love it when he wakes up tomorrow!

This is really spooky.

Maybe I should give it fangs:)

You have to give it fangs for Halloween, if you dont I will

Done, and I also added a big eye, and spikes going down its back, I will post it after I do a test print when I get home.

PLA? Or is it too brittle?
I'm assuming PETG would work well?
Cool toy!

I did this in PLA - it works best for printed springs. PETG or ABS wouldn't give you a very stiff spring.
