Printing Instructions For MakerBot Mini
=============================
If connected via WI-FI:
-------------------------
* On the Thing page, click on Thing Files to see available files.
Click on the part or version you want to print to download the thing to your computer. Click on the file once downloaded. MakerBot Desktop will open and the file you selected will appear on the build plate.
* Click the Print button to slice your model. To send the file to your MakerBot Replicator Mini and exit the Print dialog, click Start Print.
* When the print file is sent to the MakerBot Replicator Mini, the Action Button will blink blue. Press the Action Button to confirm the print. The Action Button will then glow red, indicating it is heating the MakerBot Replicator Smart Extruder. When the Smart Extruder is fully heated, the MakerBot Replicator Mini will start to print your model.
* When your print finishes, wait for the Smart Extruder to cool, then remove the build plate from the MakerBot Replicator Mini. Remove the print from the build plate, and peel off the raft from the bottom of the print.
* Every object printed on your MakerBot Replicator Mini will be built on a raft. The raft acts as a base for your object and any support structures, and ensures that everything adheres well to the build plate. The raft will be easily removable once you remove your finished object from the build plate.
* You're almost done. Go enjoy your weekend and take your newly printed friend with you. Take a few creative photos and upload them to Thingiverse as a Make by clicking I Made One above.

Sooooooooo freaking cute makerbot!
i luv it soooooooooooooooooo much!!!!!!!!!!!
cutest octopus EVER!!!!!!!!
I have been printing this sea creature for a while now, both solid and hollow, on my CUBE. Of note, I also reduced it in size by about 75% and can print adorable little baby pusses!! When the print ends (using my CUBE and ABS plastic) there is always one little strand of plastic left, extending up from the babies head: it looks like one hair, and is quite humorous. This is an outstanding design. Everyone should print at least one.
Thanks for this great model. Also printed the top hat thingiverse.com/thing:166193
Printing with a Prusa i3 and using Slic3r. Thanks!
What fill pattern do you suggest?
Just the Thing for checking out a new build and set-up. Ain't many calibration media that come this cute either :-)
Printed one at 200% (see pic here: thingiverse.com/make:39941 ) The thing is HUGE, about the size of a softball.
My mom had the greatest idea of modifying it to hold a pencil sharpener. It would be a bit disturbing to sharpen a pencil using an eyehole, so I don't really know how the whole thing would work.

I printed this and used it as a test piece for casting!
Very nice cuteopus!
Can you upload the source file? What was this designed in?
Very cute. Our Rosie (8) has printed five, and counting... They colour well with Sharpie pens. Thanks.
