Tools and Materials

Here's a project for costumes, cosplay, cats, dogs, and lovers of tailed creatures.

 The bulk of the project is 3D printed... only a few additional items are needed.

  • Silicone tubing ~12 mm (outer diameter)
  • Beadalon stringing wire .61mm
  • Standard Metal Gear Servo
  • 30mm screws (almost any kind wil do - you only need two)
  • 10mm screws
  • 8mm screws
  • Spring from a ballpoint pen

And, some basic tools.

  • Hot glue gun
  • Silicone adhesive
  • M4 tap (optional)
  • Wire cutters
  • Screwdriver

Silicone tubing has an outer diameter of ~12mm and an inner diameter of ~9mm.

Thicker stringing wire is better - your tail will last longer and will be more durable.
