Pet monster Blobby by andreas Feb 2, 2012


This is my second model for a 3d printer and I tried to use my experience with the first model (thanks for all the tips!) to give this one a better start.

Updated information will be posted in the Instructions below.

It's another little pet monster for the 3D Artist Mag contest and it's supposed to be a decoration item.

Please let me know if there are issues with this model, I'll try to fix it.

I don't own a 3d printer so I'm not sure if everything is as it should be.

Best regards,

I've started my army. I've printed one in silver ABS, which rocks, and another in glow-in-the-dark ABS. I'll post a picture of the glowy one as soon as I figure out how to take pictures in the dark. This is a great showpiece when friends ask "What can you make with a 3D printer?"

andreas on Feb 4, 2012 said:

The color looks great indeed! Thanks for sharing your result :)

And what a fine army that yould be, goggling and drooling all day long ;)

Have you thought about doing a model (maybe this one) to be printed in pieces and assembled? It would allow people to print parts in colors and then assemble them. The horns, teeth and eye in this one could be printed in white. The tongue would be tricky to print by itself but not impossible. Perhaps a flat could be added to the hidden back of the tongue and laid down. Just a thought.

Don't look at what the object is, but how could you construct it and still get the surface to look the same.

The printed shape wouldn't have to be the same shape as an actual tounge. It just has to fit in the void of the center object and the part that shows would be tounge-like.

The same as the center doesn't have to be the shape of the tongue-less creature. It could have a wedge shape void. Think of how a staircase would look if it wasn't attached to a house - it had to support itself. Or half a pyramid.

Acutally I thought about that. A problem would be that those models aren't build for that so I'd have to tweak them somewhat. I'll try to get some more information about that topic and perhaps I will do something like that in the near future.
