3D model description
Note: MasterFX has also posted another version of almost the same exact thing with the same hands.
A friend wanted me to print up a fucktopus, but when I went to print it, I realized that the fingers were all independent and overhanging, and would probably require plenty of supports. I always try to print without supports if at all possible, and couldn't help but think of my perennial favorite middle-finger model, the Rude gnome. The hand on the rude gnome is perfect, and honestly a bit more natural looking with a good, solid fist. This is why I've already used it in my extruder spinner for the Monoprice Mini and in the Rude Lego minifit megahand
So, I loaded up the smoothed fucktopus, chopped off the hands, transplanted in the rude gnome hand (cloned, resized, and reversed as necessary for each side) and grafted them back on. The work is not great, but hopefully you're not printing this at a size where that'll be an issue. It's a solid STL and checks out with no warnings in MeshMixer. It now prints with no supports needed.
Yes, the hands in the back are a bit larger - I sized each based on the tentacle it was attaching to, and both of the rearwards tentacles were quite a bit thicker. I'm not terribly concerned about achieving anatomical accuracy here.
Oh, I also removed the text from the bottom.

Note: I wanted to try Cults3D as a possible alternative to Thingiverse, but after giving it a bit of a look, I'm not super impressed. Feel free to visit my Thingiverse page if they can manage to keep that site running:
I went to school as a mechanical engineer, and got interested in 3D modeling, specifically the SDRC I-DEAS CAD/CAM software system. This interest got me my first job working for a CAD/CAM reseller doing pre and post-sales support. I was lucky to be involved in 3D printing in the early 90s - for a demo of rapid prototyping, I modeled the mouse from my HP-UX CAD workstation and it was rendered via stereolithography. I still have that model, but across the years I stopped using CAD and moved to systems administration. Now that 3D printing is affordable and mostly reliable, I've gotten into it and am having a blast. I printed all the usual cute little trinkets and tchotchkes, but quickly got bored of that. What I find most interesting is needing something, then spending a little bit of time in a CAD program and soon after that having a real, functional version of the part in my hand.
I'm a cyclist and bike mechanic as a hobby and a side job, and have found endless applications of 3D printing to both bikes and bike maintenance. Coworkers have also come to me with many varied requests, each of which has been an interesting challenge and an opportunity to learn.
I am constantly learning, constantly trying to challenge myself to learn new things and technologies, so hopefully as I progress my designs will continue to improve.
