This little whale is gonna smile at you when you take him out of your printer.Grateful to have been cloned one more time ;-)
The whale is about 120mm long but you can certainly scale him or any size you like. Just be careful when making him smaller, the eye area may lose too much details depending on your printer.
If you don't own your own 3D printer you can order a print here:
If you print it as it is, I suggest to use support (I used honeycomb with 2.5mm spacing) and infill where needed (I used honeycomb @ 0.08 fill density). That way it only needs some minor clean up after printing.
Printing time was about 3 hours on my solidoodle 2 using Slic3r and Repetier Host.
I filed off the z-wobble, treated it with Acetone vapor and sprayed it with a Krylon matte finish spray.
My name is Daniel Moos and I am passionate about technology and the new creative avenues it can open up for us. 3D is especially close to my heart/brain and I love everything from modeling, texturing, rigging, animating and rendering.
