Did you 3D print this model?

Pig

3D model description

Pig from the comic strip "Pearls Before Swine" by Stephan Pastis.

Pig is kind by nature, but extremely naive. His jokes generally involve his incompetence and not knowing his true surroundings.

No supports are required. If you have the right filament colors, no painting is needed.

The completed model is 150mm tall after assembly. This model is in proportion to the Pig and Crocodile models from the comic that I've also posted.

Enjoy!

Printing and assembly tips
Printing Tips:

1-No supports are required.
..
2-I used a brim on one piece, use your discretion based on your own preference:
-tail is a tall very curved piece with a very small base.
..
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-I had a difficult time getting the arms designed so that everything prints without supports. Therefore the fit of the arms to the body are quite tight and a bit of cleanup may be required.
..
Assembly tips:
-The diagram in the pictures section will help in assembling the model and is quite straightforward.
-The model is meant to be glued together.
-Again, take care to ensure that the first layer 'squish' and any added brim is completely cleaned off.
-The eyes pieces are interchangeable, there are no left/right differences.
-The model stands nicely on it's own, however a base is included for extra stability if needed.
