3D model description

“Get your f**' tentacle out of my face!”
A quick day project, sculpt, print and paint.. A prawn from District 9! I often re-work peoples stuff so much either for work or fun, it's nice to finally make something myself lol..

I loved this movie, it had a good mix of comedy, sci-fi, probably falls in my top 20. Sculpted in Blender, painted with acrylics.
I used unused scraps of filament, that was the plan. I didn't want to try and print antenna it just wouldn't work, so I made it without and put holes for the filament. Just melt the ends and push them in, they will form a ball and create their own ball joint (see photo) they stay inside and you can position the antenna wherever you like!
I had a tough time separating the supports in the mouth, so after my print I cut the front off so you can print it separately, trust me you will thank me when you clean it up - there isn't many supports this way. There is an internal column to support the inside of the mouth, but you can print this at 0% infill, I did, just use 2 shells.
