Did you 3D print this model?

Miner

3D model description

Miner, the school mascot for Linton Indiana High School.

This model was created as a favor to another Maker who follows my work. The model is based on a single picture that was provided (see the picture section). He has already made a few copies of the model and gave them out to the coaches of the football team.

No supports are required. If you have the right filament colors, no painting is needed.
(note: due to personal circumstances, the model that I posted is painted instead of using different colored filaments. Each part was painted individually before assembly)

The completed model is 295mm tall after assembly.

There are 40 parts, however the model is simple to print and build.

Enjoy!

Printing and assembly tips
1-No supports are required.
..
2-I used a brim on just a few pieces, use your discretion based on your own preference
..
3- For the best looking model be sure to clean your brims thoroughly. All the pieces are sized to fit nicely, providing the brims/squish are cleaned up. This includes the holes for the body_bumps.
..
4-Specific notes on a few parts.
-The left/right shoe_soles are interchangeable, in case you mix them up.
-Some bumps are identical even though I have separate stl's, the color list above defines them.
-The lantern_handle stl contains two pieces, which will fit either way
-The pick_head stl contains both halves, no left or right
-The eyes are not mirrors. The flat side that was on the print bed is the side that fits into the head, with the thicker side towards the nose.
..
5-Think ahead when deciding the order of gluing parts. Double check against the diagram.
..
6-The joints are not foolproof, but parts fit nicely when rotated properly.
..
7-Extra care should be taken to ensure lantern_strap1 and 2 have the inside of the first layer cleaned well, it's a clean tight fit around the globe. You may need to play with adjusting how they fit over the globe, even rotating them a bit for a good fit. I didn't glue mine in as they sit very well once positioned.
..
Assembly tips:
-The diagram in the pictures section will help in assembling the model and is quite straightforward even though there are a number of pieces.
