3D model description

This is a cute, wiggly little kitty 🐱 When dangling from a keychain, it looks like it's being carried by the neck, just like its mother would, and when lying on a surface, it playfully invites you to rub its belly and play with it.

It print in place with no supports or assembly required.

The model comes in three versions: "solid" does not have a hole, "hole" has a roughly 1.5 x 5 mm hole for a small screw eye pin (that's the version you can see in my pictures), and "loop" has a curved hole for a piece of string or similar.

In addition to the single-color versions, I have also included the different multicolor versions (for BambuStudio) that you can see in my pictures.
PLEASE NOTE that the two different hole types are present in the multicolor files as negative volumes. So, depending on the hole type you want to use, you'll need to delete one (or both) of the negative volumes from the object list before printing.

3D printing settings

No supports required, but due to the small contact area of some parts with the build plate, a brim or a raft is highly recommended.

Printed fine for me with generic PLA at 0.2 and 0.3 layer heights. As with any print-in-place design: make sure you have good first layer adhesion (when in doubt: use a brim or a raft) and your printer is set up correctly for bridging as well as small clearances.
