When I slice this in PrusaSlicer ... the antenna become detached at the joint.

My girlfriend asked me to print these! That's the best endorsement a design can get.

Has anyone printed this in Flexi material?

This is EXACTLY what I needed to play a prank on my boss. Thank you!

Hope it worked well! I also hope you didn't get fired!

He didn’t fall for it but did keep the spider and I did keep my job lol

Thank you for this thing! Thumbs up to you!

If you cut 0.2mm from the bottom the legs stick down (they are floating slightly off the plate otherwise).

I uploaded a fixed STL (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3166204), moved down to the build plate (shaved off its beer belly) and with an oval inserted under the body to aid adhesion. Thanks for a great model, Drawn_to_spec!

EDIT: An easy and stress-free way to shape the legs is to boil a cup of water, pick up a spider from above with pliers and dip it in for 5 seconds, pull it out, and position the legs. That amount of plastic can't retain enough heat at that temperature to hurt you, so you're not going to burn yourself. And you can re-dip as it cools and take your time. I shaped a dozen spiders before the water even cooled enough to need re-heating.

Thanks! That immediately looked weird to me and I knew something was up haha.

I want to print some of these, but I also don't want a divorce.

These look great! I imagine a few seconds under a heat gun would also allow you to pose them.

Thanks! Putting them in boiling water also works, but you still have to work quick.

I was just going to ask, That's a great idea.
