good design and inspiring work. Thx for sharing.

Great design, any tips on printing the arms and joints?

Joints - if I print without brim the smaller part lifts from the bed before the print can finish. If I print with brim there's too much material, even after sanding, for it to rotate as well as the other joints.

Arms - I've tried printing both ways, with and without supports, with cooling and without. I finally managed to get an acceptable arm, but the cylinder for the joint isn't too great underneath.

I really enjoy your designs. Please continue this animal series. I like the way you use snap-in parts in different colours to avoid the need to paint.

Can't wait for the panda!


when will be the panda available?

None of the files will open in Cura. Any ideas?

Bonjour !
Je voudrais imprimer aussi des pandas, mais je ne trouve pas sur les fichiers officiels celui des pandas. (il n'y a que l'ours)
Pourriez vous m'envoyer vos fichiers ?

Hello !
I also want to print pandas, but I do not find on the official files that of the pandas. (There is only the bear)
Could you send me your files?
Thank you

Is this print appropriate for younger ages such as 3 or 2 year olds? Do peices snap tightly?

No,it's not appropriate for 2 or 3 year-old-child because there are lots of small parts that children might swallow them.

Want to make this BLACK BEAR look even cooler ?!? Check out this sweet remote controlled LED light for this 3D print!


Very Cool . please keep designing and make some more. ....

How can I upload a remix?
I made a Panda version that I would like to share.

When you hit create, in the Create a new thing page you will notice "this is a remix" check box. Click that box. And fill in the souce file information. That's it.

Great design ! Really cool model.

I added a small piece of filaflex filament on each rotating joint, between the clips to add friction.

so cool I love it!!!!!!!!!

Great work!! any idea how long you need to make the panda model a thing?
Keep up the good work!

There are other work, the short-term can not be completed.

New update (black bear-all( black)-2)

哈囉~ 感謝你分享這麼棒的圖!! 我昨天做了熊熊頭,非常棒!! 可以今天要做左手的時候出了問題,因為你把手掌朝下,所以底部很不穩,我用MakerBot印的時候前幾層都有問題。 可以請你幫忙把原檔轉成手掌朝上 手背朝下嗎? 我不會用。 感謝!!


感謝你!! 下周末應該就可以完成了!! 到時候再分享:) 不過我的是橘熊 哈哈

Just download you will have.

I am having trouble pressing the white eyes into the head. Do you have any hints?

I have the same problem, think there's a couple of reasons, slight elephant foot issue on the whites of the eyes and possible quality issues with the centre of the eyes themselves.

Did you manage to get them sorted in the end? Any tips?

Going to re-try printing the white eyes either with a raft to avoid elephant foot, or a fraction smaller maybe 98% or something to help get them in.

This is sooooo amazing and so cute ! I love it so much!!!! You are such a fabulous maker!

Hey, I really love this print and was wondering if you would like to try a sample of our 1.75mm PLA filament and see how it works out! Free filament and free shipping just contact me at gabe@foxsmart.org and I can get you set up! Thanks and again great print!

I appreciate your kindness, but I live in Asia, Taiwan, your mailing cost is too expensive.

大大,他的意思是你想不想試試看他們的料。 他們會免費提供料給你,運費也是他們出。


Looking forward to the panda - thanks CJR UK

大大 你太強了~~~ 感謝設計出來這麼棒的東西!!! 拿來送給朋友剛剛好...


FABULOUS - made 2 so far and will be printing more for friends, thank you CJR UK

I posted a make but wanted to let you know that I had an issue with printing the black parts due to how the hands are placed in the black_bear-all_parts file. I would recommend turning them on the backside like I did and they print without supports.

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for your comments. But beauty or easy to print and choose one, I choose beauty.

how long does it take to print on an ultimaker?

I have never used Ultimaker,so I can not answer your question. I use UP+. So I can tell you,it takes about ten hours to print on the UP+.

Could u do a solid version that does not have moving parts. my printer is not that great and couldn't do all the small pieces.

Sorry! limb movements is the focus of my design, so I can not give you solid version.

I checked the file no problem. Please re-download, or download the individual parts and print again.

Updated program for the printer.
Bear found the real form.

When/where will we be able to get the panda!?!?!?!

Panda is still paper model, it has not been modified into 3D printing files.Please give me more time!

Take your time. Love your models! Looking forward to the panda.

Brilliant, 水啦!


Arm clips design is no problem, you can see other maker do out of the finished photos. Each arm needs two arm clips, assembly methods look at the third picture, if you still can not successfully assembled, may be insufficient precision 3D printing machine.

The arm clips do not work very well. Do not like that idea.It's a shame.

They should just have normal pegs or some better design. Other than that, I like it.


Thank you like my work, give me a little time, I will complete these works.

Love it, I can't wait for next one, please the PANDA, PLEASE , PLEASeeeeee

感謝您的分享! 感恩!
