Articulated Plesiosaurus Turtle STL

The STL (Standard Tessellation Language or STereoLithography) file format is the most commonly used format for 3D printing. 

When used with a 3D slicer, it allows a computer to communicate with the 3D printer hardware, printing a model.

Since its humble beginnings, many CAD software packages have adopted and supported the STL file format. 

It is a 3D printing process and corresponding file type created by Chuck Hull at 3D Systems in the 1980s. It is for rapid prototyping, 3D printing, and computer-aided manufacturing.

This print-in-place STL was created by ENDK7. He says he found his inspiration in the Pokemon Lapras.

You get 3 Shell designs which are swappable.


You are authorized to:

  • Print and use the 3D prints of the 3D model for private use, in unlimited quantity;
  • Share the images of your 3D prints of the 3D model on communication media such as social networks or websites.

What is not allowed:

  • No commercial use or public sharing of the 3D model;
  • No modification or adaptation of the 3D model for public sharing or sale;
  • No distribution, sale, donation, or exchange of the digital files of the 3D model.

Under the following terms:

Plesiosaurus Turtle STL Printing Settings Recommendation

  • A leveled bed is required for a nice result
  • 3 walls
  • 10-25% infill
  • No supports
  • Raft or brim if you have adhesion issues
  • He recommends activating the Z-jump 0.3-0.5mm for more safety

Once you’ve finished downloading the STL File, follow these steps:

  1. Use appropriate software to unzip the 3D-printed turtle file (if the file is in .zip or .rar format).
  2. Import the file (or any other 3D printable format) into your preferred 3D slicer program.
  3. Adjust your slicer’s necessary settings to prepare the 3D printing process and generate the final G-Code.
  4. Transfer the G-Code to your 3D printer using methods such as an SD card, USB connection, WiFi, or any other suitable means.
