Description

When he was President, Theodore Roosevelt often encouraged friends and family to get out into nature. At the American Museum of Natural History, we share Roosevelt's passion for the natural world, and we want you to go outdoors and start exploring.

Start by downloading and printing your own TinyTR. Then plan your own expedition to a park or anywhere else you experience nature and take a photo of your own TinyTR. Tweet it with #TinyTR to @AMNH.

Jason, So glad you enjoyed it. Teddy continues to delight.
Hey again. One of our Visual Lab guys showed me a Teddy print he received during ASTC. Looks great in person.
I keep having a problem when printing out the "newcut" version: the bottom isn't level. Only the area under the right shoulder touches the print surface, the rest is printed as overhangs. All I did was rotate the model in Netfabb 90 degrees along one axis to put the head on top.

Instructions

The American Museum of Natural History's Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Hall features an exhibition charting Theodore Roosevelt's journey from a budding naturalist exploring the Museum's halls to an elected leader with a deep commitment to conservation.

At the center of the hall, a new bronze sculpture of Theodore Roosevelt, depicted as he looked during a famous 1903 camping trip to Yosemite with naturalist John Muir, invites visitors to sit next to TR and contemplate his pioneering role in conservation and the vital importance of protecting nature today. Near the sculpture, a new bronze medallion embedded in the floor depicts American bison grazing in Theodore Roosevelt National Park in the North Dakota Badlands with the inscription, "There can be no greater issue than that of conservation in this country," an excerpt from Roosevelt'™s Confession of Faith speech delivered at the Progressive National Convention in Chicago on August 6, 1912.

These TinyTeddys are scans of the new bronze sculpture.

**>>teddy_newcut.stl is a lower res version with shoulders and no logos, but has a wide flat base and can be printed without supports!

muckychris - That's just how Teddy rolled. They only went over the eyes, connected by a piece that pinched over the nose.
beautiful piece!!! what is up with the eyeglasses? There is a part over the nose but no real glasses ya? jus wondering.
I am very excited about this!
NICE DESIGHNING SKILLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you have made a copy of TinyTR, please send a Tweet with a photo of him enjoying nature to @AMNH with the hash #TinyTR We'd love to see where you are taking him!
im looking for one of Jackson any ideas where i could find one
Hi Scarecrow2k6 - thanks. And yes, that is the plan. Watch for it later this week.
Hi, great model. Would it be possible for you to upload a model without the two logos on the bottom? Thanks.
What's wrong with a little logo? Doesn't effect the print-ability, they're out of the way and not visible most of the time, and they give credit to the people who did they hard work. I say leave them.
You want a logo, you don't want a logo - it's up to you. We offer you both. But the the one without the logo prints better when tiny.
They dont often look great, but you're right there's something to be said for labeling your designs. I uploaded another type of head so that people can have both options.
