Carla and LEO's Sheep
by leothemakerprince, published
LEO said, "Draw me a sheep", and Carla did. The next thing you know, his nozzles heated up and his spools started spinning, and this is the sheep that emerged on this tray.

I'm using the FlashForge Creator and pretty much have to do this with any model that has parts that print in the air. The hard thing after you print the model is super-gluing it together perfectly - you only get one shot!
Oh I'm so glad to hear this worked out! Thanks for sharing your solution. I'm sure it will be helpful for other people, too. My sheep seem to print well on MakerBot Replicators and Afinia, but the split solution will help for those people who are having the same trouble as you. I sometimes print with less support and the inside cavities for the legs form pretty well. What kind of printer were you using?

2. Print the sheepBLACK file. (The upright version is newest and may print well without support.)
3. Clean support off of all files and insert the black parts into the white part. There is a nose, ears, and four legs.
4. Note that the legs should bend towards the inside of the body.
Here's a tip from Jen Adams at MakerBot: if you put the legs in most of the way (remember, they should curve inwards) and then put the sheep on a table surface and press gently down on the body, you can get the legs to snap in and fit snugly.
