How did you get this apart without breaking it. Both the body and the wing snapped with hardly any pressure.

everything fits together well, but the wings are too floppy, not at all like the pictures you posted.

Which layersize do you use.

layer height=0.2 mm. infill=50%.

Hi @jtronics your designs are lovely, I want to contribute with some new animals, can you please tell me how are those made? is there a plugin for Fusion 360 that splits a solid shape into a "flexy" one?

Articulated Anything!

Sorry, there is no plugin. You have to do the flex-design it by yourself.
Which animals are you looking for and which did you already print?

Is it another file for the wings?

which other file? I added a second Body file with a smaller hole for the wings.

The wings don't fit in the holes in the body they are way too loose.

could you tell me how much? Than I will update the bird model.

Just tested a few sizes of the wings. 105% worked great on the wings with body at 100%.
