3D model description
I loved the look of these Mermaid Corbels (I didn't even know what a "corbel" was before I saw these!) uploaded by @darkside501st but when I went to print them, all three threw up errors in Cura, with the left being the worst. The left model was turned completely inside out! I imported these into blender, cleaned them up the best I could, and then let netfabb do the rest. I would have preferred to get these down to a single shell, but ... you have to balance time and effort with results.
For the best quality, print these upside down with supports enabled. I prefer Tree Supports in Cura. They are easier to remove and leave fewer scars.
I wanted to use these on an 8" shelf I put up so I added a stretched version of each that extends the upper ledge by 54.5mm. Then I was able to scale it up in my slicer as large as I could go - about 6-1/2" long. I reckon I'll use either Gorilla Glue or Liquid Nails to attach them.
@tato_713 made a great suggestion... you could use these as bookends, too!

I am a self-proclaimed know-it-all. I will tackle any project regardless of my experience, or lack thereof. Always ready to learn something new. With over 25+ years experience in electronic repair and 10+ years experience in small engine / ATV / motorcycle repair, there is nothing I can't fix, modify or build.
Why a pepper? In case anyone is curious as to why there is a hot pepper embossed into most of my designs... My nickname is Pepper and that little pepper logo is a hell of a lot shorter than "Copyright © 2017 by Derek J.G. Tombrello" which is how I usually sign my work :)
