Scanned with the MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner. The original object [picture attached] was very reflective so I painted it matte grey. Also, I used modelling putty to fill the void where the arm articulated.

Printed at Standard resolution, super fun addition to my cat collection.

This is neat and has a huge amount of potential, however, I printed a big one of these, and it came out just like the other four makes: that is, the hand is all shrunken and deformed (see chofee's blue make for a good close up example) and the ears are filled in between and clipped off on the top (look at BartW's make for the best example of this.) If you look at the second picture with the three yellow painted cats, the hand appears normal size and the ears are pointed on the top (this is especially visible on the two larger cats. The smaller two do appear to have the clipped ears) a clue that leads me to think multiple scans were taken along the way, and probably the wrong one was uploaded.

Ahh, this is like piggy bank

Impressive ... Well done..

Thanks for the nice cat. I am wondering what materials you used for painting the product?

We can print this with Cat infiL :)

This would be pretty easy to animate, just add a bearing in the shoulder and counterweight inside the body attached to the arm. I'll take a crack at it if I have some free time.

Love this! You should make a Thingiverse cat collection, too!
