Thank you

Can you help me with optimal settings for clean look like in the profile picture of the product. I tried to print it myself and mine final product look like

What should i change to get smoother final product?

I also send the file to my colleagues and they came out with similar result.

Can this be printed without supports?

Yes, this model is designed to be printed without support.

Can i have its DXF file? want to write my son and wife's name on it. Please

It really depends on the material you print it with and the infill you choose.

I'm just a beginner who printed this sculpture in the horizontal position and found out the hard way why you don't do that. Oops. I will have to try again.

You can change the position of the model once you slice it

and what is the slicer?

You can change the position of the model once you have it in the slicer

I am going to do this immediately when my printer gets here. Beautiful sculpture. My Wife will love it!!!

Awesome! Would love to see your print :D

This is very cool. Wondering why it's laying down. No problem except for those who don't have the ability to stand it up. I know, glass half empty. Thanks for the great art.

You're welcome. Make sure to show your print :)

It serves to demonstrate that there's no maker's mark on the print, something which would make this gift pretty tacky.

Thanks for leaving that off :)

You're welcome :)

Your art work has CLASS.

Thanks :) We'll be posting something in the upcoming days :D

Do you print it on it's back or standing up? Are supports needed? Great job.

Standing up and support is not needed :)

you answered my not asked question :-) will surely print it in wood and post.

Awesome! can't wait to see it :D

Nice! thx alots! nice models!

you're welcome. Thanks for your comment :)

How hard would it be to split into three or four pieces to build a giant version?

Also what's the infill % as well as mm/s extruder speeds?

Check out this tutorial that shows how to split the model into pieces: http://u.tinkerine.com/en-ca/tutorials/3dmodeling/meshmixer/meshmixer-slicing.html
The infill should be 20% and extruder depends on the printer. Let us know if you plan to print it out :D

I'm printing it right now

Thank you. Please make sure to share your images with us by clicking on "I made one" :D

Why is it an OBJ file???? Shouldn't it be a STL file

Hi Bruce,

Click the link to download it in STL format:


Let us know if you need anything.

you can easely turn an obj file to stl with every 3d modeling program.

One quick way would be to upload the obj to makeprintable.com and then when you reach to step 4, it will ask you what format would you like to download your file, you can always select STL. One of our hidden benefits of using MakePrintable is we can convert CAD files from one format to another. ;-)
Try uploading a Gcode and download it using STL.

I get that but why the extra step.... just save it as an STL. file to begin with.

oh wow that's beautiful.

Thank you. Let us know if you print it :)
