This post Contain Two version of improved and Experimental version of Seven The Articulated Dragon
One of it is Seven Point five first attempt of revised it's joints and get little more larger than original seven.
and Next one is Nine which is 200% larger from original and unable to down scale again due to little Thickness points here and there and articulated fingers And Most important feature is separated parts for dual coloring with single nozzle. it's large that require at least entire week of full straight prints.
This is My eighth of dragon child and Sister to the Seven.
it more focused on stablize ball and joints strength and prevent ball's broken off. by chop off the ball it self from parts to prevent getting break off. but, it is pack of experimental tricks, you may need to glue the some parts together.
The head it self is same as Seven as i was had no idea for head when i started develope this dragon.
In end of build, Wing Base, Wing limbs Arm and legs And Artuculated Finger yet remain unstable.. So half succeed... perhaps i will build another one to fix remaining troubles..
As Experimental version of Seven the Articulated dragon. it's have mostly same look and structure. however, some of joints desgins has changed for better stablitys and most impotantly to prevent the ball from break off by separate the ball from main parts.
Sadly, 'Wing base' part was not much changed from previeous dragon as i was can not acquire much spaces for better 'wing base' part from the Body 01. therfore, this part may weak to withstand weight of the wing so you will have to infill 'Wing base' part much more for better result.
1. The Body (Neck, Waist and Tail)
All parts except Tail tip are supposed to Assemble with The Ball at supposed port on top of part
All parts are supposed to be Mirror X
Neck 01 ~ Neck 13 + The Ball X13
Body 01 ~ Body 06 + The Ball X6
Tail 01 ~ Tail 20 + The Ball X20
Tail 21 End Tip
2. The Wing System
Wing Cutting Template
Wing Arm 01 (Lower wingarm)
Wing Arm 02 (Upper Wingarm)
Wing Limb Hub
Wing Limb A (Longst and outer limb)
Wing Limb B
Wing Limb C
Wing Limb D (Shortst and inner limb)
Wing Limbs End Tip X8
Wing Limb Test in Reserve
This part is not used in current model. however, current wing limb is a bit britle. Print two and compare to current wing limb. if you find Test limb is better than current one then tell me change all Limbs into this type.

+Got 200% bigger than original
+Separated parts for dual color with single nozzle
+Joints change to get thighter
-Even more difficult and complex to build
-Yet have some flaws here and there
-Unable to down scale again, it's minimal size of this project
it's parts can cracked with high pressure from ball and sokets so please don't try to go in once.make segments three~four per prints.
Even more complex and difficult to build and easy to confused. recommend to only try this dragon for who completed original seven or Seven point five
and skip build steps.
this project consume more than over one 1kg roll of primary color and another roll secondary color
