Owl statue... good for scaring away pigions and crows.


Print and paint to desired colors

Print out both this file and the companion Owl (Owl Statue Facing Left) They would make a great pair of matching Owls. One facing to the right and one facing to the left. Owls mate for life so you need to print out a pair of them!!

I featured this in my 3D printing series Thingisplore: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCCK1YE-TWw&index=1&list=PL06BiYWvHjWEWXxchUOsOLMXQD_2oeStm It looks realy nice perched on my shelf, great job on the design.

That video is nuts. You are really onto something here!

Hey Tom, check this print out! It made me smile.

Wow... Very Cool.. Please post your "How to" video on how you made this! That would be great. Thanks so much.

I will print off a bunch of these because my friends Daughter is afraid of them... mwa ha ha ha ha ha.

I used this owl for my first Time-Lapse 3D Printing channel. You can check it out here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIOoPMGqLBw

This is owl has become the standard test for 3D printing. this time I Printed mine with a cute Portabee 3D printer KIT, used 0.3mm res at 20mm/seg, took 1.39 hours to print scaled at 50%

The Owl has taken off!!!

Thanks for this great model!
Printed with my Mendel90 with no issues besides some flawed finish on the more overhanging parts. But I'm thinking this is inevitable with PLA on downwards facing surfaces.

do i need support for the nose? mine failed :(

I didn't on my Mendel90. Printed with 0.2mm full size. Sliced with Slic3r with Supports enabled, but it didn't add any.

FWIW, the two side by side owls I uploaded were printed using acceleration at 120mm/s and 0.1mm layer height. Each took about two hours forty-four minutes to print. The owl on the left used default SF50 settings, including perimeter slowdown of 50% and 1.0 mm retraction (reversal). The one on the right also used default SF50 settings BUT then perimeter slowdown and retraction were disabled and altshell and firmware deprime were instead used. Both came out quite nice.

Little detail: the owls are scaled to 50% of full size.

Really nice and smooth sidewall quality.

Any chance you could share your slice settings?

OP said s/he didn't make it, and that they think it was done on one of the new Replicator machines a few comments down.

I like this model

Looks perfect! ^^

Was there another, smaller version of this? I'm watching it print now and it looks like it's going to be a lot bigger than what I see in the pictures - probably end up 150mm or so tall..

Yes, it is quite large. I scaled it down to half size.

Which machine did you make this on?

I'm not sure. I didn't make it. I believe it was made on one of the new Replicator machines.

Owls rule! I'll print this and add it to my collection of owls


Awesome Video! Really got to print one now :)

Owls rule!

BUBO! ...wait, no, not quite.

Nice detail, tho. How'd you model it?

I thought it was Bubo too!

what a wonderful looking owl! my girlfriend and sister will be majorly disappointed if i don't print this for them.
