Variant of sunboy4224's Elephant statue with a base for easier printing/standing.

You can remove the base after printing for an cleaner look, or print the original using a raft/brim.


Same as the original:

"Print the elephant using exterior support (I used 25% infil and 3 shells with ABS), remove support structure (being particularly careful around the delicate tusks), clean, and enjoy!"

I printed this without support, the tusks were difficult.  I supported them by hand, and added in some plastic via with a hot knife after I was done.  Overall, it looks great!

Glad it came out okay. Definitely meant to be printed with supports, you're a hero for doing it by hand.

This derivative isn't really needed for me anymore for prints like this, as increasing Slic3r's "Brim Width" setting makes a pretty effective raft for keeping prints like this in place during the initial layers. (Also helped with my companion cubes)
