Instructables: Code a Wiggly Snake

Design and 3D print an articulated snake, of any length!

“Articulated” means that you print the entire piece at once, and when you remove it from the build plate the pieces are hinged together – no assembly required! Use Codeblocks, the Autodesk coding environment in Tinkercad to create a head, body piece, and tail, then multiply the body piece to change the length of the snake. Customize any piece of the snake to make it look friendly, dangerous, or just unique.

Learn a simple coding platform while creating your snake, and see how basic coding principles can be useful in designing objects with repetitive features.
