I am still experimenting on what can be done with the Form2 printer and the durable resin material. I figured it would be a good test to make a figure with a transforming feature. I always loved horseshoe crabs so I choose one as the alt mode for the figure.
The transformation works well although with this figure paint chipping is kinda unavoidable. The tail can either be used as a sword or a gun.

Full disclaimer: I only have one figure at the moment. So this picture is a composition of two separately taken pictures.



Here is a video of the transformation:

Did you have to print multiple pieces?  I've been surprised to see motion in some printed toys that apparently weren't done in pieces.

Yes, the figure is printed in parts and then simply snapped together.
