What!! Please post that as a make!

A friend saw my wife's Instagram post of the one we made for our cats. She wanted a "bigger one" for her 100+ pound dogs, and asked what the "biggest" I could print would be. Some quick math and I figured I could cut the base into quarters, print each quarter at 200mm on my Ender3, then glue the base together. End result was a model 209% bigger than the original.

Each sliding piece is 6 hours and 110g of filament. The base (in quarters) is 4 x 28 hours and 4 x 270g of filament.

So total is just over 2kg filament and 166 hours of print time... I hope her dogs like thier Christmas gift!

Words of caution are always appreciated!

Everyone should use their best judgement, disinfect, monitor pets while they play, etc. but if for any reason if you just don’t feel comfortable, don’t print it 🙂

Yes, but for this build you specified PLA and I wouldn't advise it for pets. They will eventually lick or even chew it, which can release toxins.

PLA is not food safe!!!
