3D model description

Today (16th July)is my friend Chris's birthday and as he loves Hawaii and cats, I had a theme for for his birthday model in mind already. Chris is a good pal and deserves birthday wishes

There are not many tiki cats and definitely not ones which embrace the lovely patterns and form which is part of the the Tiki culture - so I winged (or pawed) it. I hope nobody from Hawaii minds and takes it in the spirit of friendship and enjoys the model.

Pōpoki is Hawaiian for cat but perhaps your Tiki kitty will let you know their true name once you print them!

3D printing settings

Two versions are provided:

1) a solid version sutiable for FDM printing and should you wish to hollow a version yourself for resin printing

2) a version hollowed and with drainholes that I used myself to print in resin

No supports needed for the resin print (at this scale) but they are likely needed for and FDM print around his muzzle
