Featured Thing!

Description

Octocat is watching you check in your source code.

Based on the popularity of the octopus model here on Thingiverse and the popularity of GitHub among programmers, I figured I would try making a creepy version of GitHub's octocat.

This model is a frankenstein mashup between Bucket o' Octopi thingiverse.com/thing:7900 and The Cat thingiverse.com/thing:1283

Change Log:

Version 2 of this model is the latest and fixes the flat areas found in version 1.

Version 1 of this model has a couple of flat areas in the cat's head. This is entirely due to my Blender skills and a big mistake that occurred early in the process, but wasn't caught until late. It's not noticeable at MakerBot resolutions, but if you were to print this on a fancy professional printer, I'd wait until the next version. There's also a minor problem with the cat's chin being just a bit too much of an overhang for a MakerBot to handle perfectly, but it still looks good after you cut away some of the slop/drool.

my 1st useful print! after rough calibrating i had to print something else then a boring cube. so this was my model. :-)

it printed very nice and everyone who sees it likes it as well.

thanks for it. :-)
Nice. Very lovable.

It's probably a good idea for everyone to watch the Octocat series on YouTube by David O'Reilly. youtube.com/watch?v=8hm3E2cGQE4
Share-Alike states it must be Share-Alike (or or similar).

Non-commercial states it must be non-commercial.

So the logical license is "CC BY-NC-SA" creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ which is a combination of both.

Just a note, but you have this listed as Non-commercial. The Bucket O' Octopi that you have derived this from is Share-Alike. As far as I know you cannot list this as Non-commercial as it violates the Share-Alike license. You can see the Share-Alike info here: creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/

The line "Share Alike — If you alter, transform, or build upon this work, you may distribute the resulting work only under the same or similar license to this one." is what is in violation.
You know, I wasn't paying super-close attention to the original licenses when I picked one for this. Thanks for pointing that out to me. The octopus is just share-alike, but the cat is non-commercial. Given those two differences, I am really not 100% sure how this derivative is supposed to be classified. Though given only the Octopus and not the Cat is share-alike, I guess I should follow the Octopus license.
Truthfully I was wondering the same. I know for sure Share-Alike states the license of a derivative must continue as Share-Alike. I haven't been able to look through the long version of the non-commercial license to see if it states the same. This makes an important question for Mash-Up type things.

It should surely go on this page: octodex.github.com/

I still haven't worked out why their octocat has only five legs... or is it four legs and an octo-tail?
By the way, Kliment made also an Octocat some times ago koti.kapsi.fi/~kliment/octocat/
the drooling is nice for a little "cthulhu" touch :)
Give meshmixer.com a try. It's great for making mashups and you could use the smooth function to take care of that flat side and to pull out the chin a little to reduce the overhang.
Wow, all that and not a single James Bond reference. I'm hoping it's a simple oversight and not because you're too young and hip to know what I'm talking about. It WAS all the way back in 1983...
You know, that hadn't occurred to me, honestly. I'd been thinking exclusively of the little anime-style GitHub mascot. I'm old enough to remember that film in theaters, but young enough to have thought it was a gross kissing movie. :)
So disturbing, must print one.
