Great work !
The stem broke off mid print on mine. Body is doing fine with support.

The stem broke off mid print on mine. Body is doing fine with support.
I'm having a tough time printing the body. The outline of each layer of the body curls up and as it got higher, eventually it printed in mid air because the layer below it is actually curled into the center of the pumpkin. I'm on layer 22 now, and it seems to have corrected itself (each layer is flat instead of curled up on the outside). Any tips on how to avoid curling? The lid worked fine, no issues there and they're printed at the same time. Thanks in advance!
We generated supports for this when printing on the Makerbot. The test print without the supports failed like yours.
Any chance you could post the top piece as 2 pieces for dual extrusion? green stem would be divine
Failed to print twice on my Ultimaker. Unfortunatelly the base is too small and the print gets detached right after printing the nose, never got higher :(

Find my "solar" lid in remixes...scaled it to 222% (it´s Halloween even here in germany...) to fit it in the most printers...Just take the solar unit of a solar powered garden lamp like you can find at Walmart etc fpr 99 Cent, put it in the openeing of the lid...that´s it! Useful also for using "real" tea candles...looks better than just the open pumpkin!
Enjoy 3d halloween!
Awesome!!!!! I just got translucent orange PLA in the mail, can't wait to print this out!

I'd rather use a candle though...
