Eaglez continue on from my popular Sharkz and Crocz.
Eaglez stand up and can be used to hold cards, bite bags closed and more... check out all the images.
This is another fun print in place / one piece print with moving parts. Just squeeze the back and chest parts together to open the beak and bite whatever is nearby...
No support is required... leave it turned completely off. Refer to the instructions provided and images for more details.
Note: This prints really well on a Replicator 2 and 5th Generation MakerBot's with PLA. The only thing to check after printing is that the beak fully opens. If your machine doesn't bridge as well as mine / others you may need to remove a fraction of material from the jaw channel. The alternative is to scale the model up by 5-10% which will increase clearances.

You can alter he strength of the bite by changing the number of shells and amount of infill. MakerBot user recommendations are:
Replicator 2: Std. 0.2mm resolution / 3 shells / 30% fill / Raft / NO SUPPORT
5th Generation Models: Std. 0.2mm resolution / 4 shells / 35% fill / Raft / NO SUPPORT
If you want a weaker or stronger bite change the shells / infill to suit.
At standard size 'Eaglez' will bite okay onto little fingers. If you want to bite bigger fingers uniformly scale up as required (125% should bite most thumbs okay).
