3D model description

This is the ultimate definition of Cuteness.
are you bored with your static vases?
So here is what you need an articulated Vase that has articulated joints and the best part is: EASY TO PRINT, no needed supports to print its body, but for its head is recommended for better quality.

Yes, you put your print there and here we go, your model is ready and articulating!!

Isn't that cool??

what are you waiting for?? :D

ops: ohh and it has 3 different types of mouth :D

any question please let me know on comments.

I advise you to print in 0.1 for a better quality
as I said, no need support in its body.stl but if you want to make it with secure no problem, just be sure to remove the support inside of it where it has its joints or it can turn into a problem.

I've printed in 50mm/s in abs. but if your printer can handle it even better so go ahead.

Also, I didn't print in other sizes, I think in a smaller configuration can become a problem, and in a higher size your joints can become a little loose.

In any case if your body isn't printing well the joints aren't articulating or they are weld, you can try to configure your Horizontal Compensatoin (simplify 3D) put beetwen -0,01 to -0,5 if still isn't working try a bit lower.

JERICOH - I had the same problem on my first print attempt, but in Cura I had to uncheck "union overlapping volumes" under Mesh Fixes to prevent that. I think the leg and body are so close because of the textured detailing on the torso at that point that my slicer thought it was meant to be connected and just missed. The second print came out perfect. (Until I applied a little too much pressure getting the head on and snapped the neck, but that was a me problem, not a file problem.)

Hi, I bought the file but I have a problem with printing. one of the legs is glued to the body. looking straight ahead is the right leg. I await your response, thank you.

como imprimo el groot de forma articulada? ya que el cuerpo viene en una sola pieza

MichalStarc87 I made a mistake the heads were smaller, the Z size has to be "75,38mm" please download again I've fixed the files, my sinceres apologies. :/

hmm Got it, On simplify 3D you can configure the "Horizontal size compensation" it can help you fit things that wasn't fitting before.
Just a little advise, try to not sand a lot the ball joint, cause your head can become loose.

i did head1, yeah i ll sand a little bit to see if it fits, i was asking in case if i missed something, thanks!

Hello MichalStarc87 Thank you for your download, just to know what head did you printed head1 / head2 / head3?
I didn't had problems to put the head into his body maybe you can just try it hard, but if you really feel the head will not fit into his body you can use a sandpaper to sand a bit the ball joint in his body.

how can i put the head into his body? ball does not fit into the head.
