3D model description

I originally modeled this dinosaur egg to use as a candy bucket for Halloween. My kiddo wore a dinosaur costume and carried this egg from door to door. He got so many compliments and now I'm making the model available for anyone to print.

Your download will include two options - With and without the slots for a bucket strap so you can use it in other ways besides as a candy bucket. Both versions use the same lid.

Egg size:
238 mm / 9.37 in. tall
168.5 mm / 6.64 in. wide

Nozzle and Layers
I printed my dino egg with a 0.60 mm nozzle and 0.30 mm layers, but a 0.40 mm nozzle will work too.

Keep the speed slow for the bottom section of the egg near the build plate. It's a steep angle there and the slower you go, the better the quality will be.

I used 20% gyroid infill for durability as a bucket, but you could probably go lower on the infill percentage. For the hinge section, I set that to 100% infill.

The slots for straps are pre-supported if you are using this version of the egg. You might choose to support the inside center of the lid for the highest print quality.
