Articulated Crab (Pachygrapsus crassipes)

  • White

    White nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.


This fully posable shore crab (Pachygrapsus crassipes) is inspired by the handmade articulated Japanese sculptures of insects and crustaceans, 'jizai okimono' which were popular in the Meiji era. The default material is white nylon sintered plastic, which is relatively tough and can be painted with acrylic paints.

This is one of my favorite parts to find here at Shapeways, it has so much personality. I usually make it dance a little before sending it off.
