Fennec Fox

by Physics_Dude, published

Description

I found this fantastic model of a (low poly) fennec fox on the Google 3D Warehouse goo.gl/z5YFi by user Xaya.
The design prints superbly without any alterations and it was exported to STL format via Google Sketchup.

Update: I made a plated version of this fox some time ago and found it to produce much cleaner results due to the lack of overhangs. This is especially useful when printing at a larger scale.

Hmm, well I doubt the model's issue. I'm no expert with the Replicator 2, but ask the Makerbot Google group, they will gladly help you out.

We're trying to print it, but I get an error message that it's looking for a platform heating. I'm using a Replicator 2, is there something that I need to change in the settings to make it print on this printer?

This was a great learning experience and the object printed beautifully. The first thing I got out of my new 3D printer that I really felt happy with. Many thanks for posting it here and for the additional support!

This is really awesome. I'm having trouble finding good information on "support material" though. So unfortunately, I am unable to print this ):

Very cool though

Are you using ReplicatorG? If so, simply select "Full Support" from the drop-down menu after you click "Generate Gcode". The default settings for support in skinforage should work just fine.

It is my sad duty to inform you that you misspelled 'piece' :(
