Jake the Dog bedside shelf.
I wanted a bedside shelf for my phone, watch, and whatever else. Since I have five untouched rolls of yellow Z-ABS, I figured Jake would be a good use of yellow filament.
There are nine pieces total, and they all fit together perfectly once printed. I highly recommend assembling several times without glue, just to get familiar with the build process. Everything goes together pretty easily, but pay attention when gluing jowels.stl in place. Jowels.stl is slotted to fit sockets.stl & pupils.stl perfectly. You have to make sure it’s in place, as nose.stl snaps in underneath it. Just assemble it a few times beforehand and you’ll get a feel for it.
1) Insert mouth into mouth slot. It’s probably not going to come out once inserted, as the jowels keep it in place. You can use glue on this. I did not.
2) Glue pupils.stl into socket.stl. These are slotted and can only fit one way.
3) Glue the newly formed eye pieces into base.stl. These are slotted, but match the eye orientation to the pictures provided as best you can. These have to be spot on, as the slots on jowels.stl need it to be perfectly in place to attach perfectlly to base..
4) You can swap steps 3 and 4 if you want, I think. The nose is slotted to fit the jowels, so you could actually assemble the nose and jowels before the eyes…I think. I didn’t assemble that way, but in retrospect, that may have been the better way to go about it.
5) Insert screw plug into the hole at the top and you’re good to go. I kept it a little on the long side to accommodate for different screw lengths. Just sand it down if it’s too big, or enlarge along the appropriate axis if it’s too small.
