He's one of the little minions from the movie Despicable Me. I though they were kinda cool so I made it on AudoCAD.


Print, put together, paint, make him some overalls with some old jeans!

Nice Makerbot verified part from a non-manifold stl. Really Op. Even in 2012, the last comment says I had some issue with the eyes. Well, Doesn't this tell you something.

I printed it. good thing I scaled it to 60mm, There was a 1 mm gap around the eyes and head. I didn't notice it until it was almost done. The top of his brain just fell off.

Hist arms are too this for a proper print. There isn't anything to hold them still. I used auto supports in S3D, should have been enough, however not for this design. Do to the lack of project info and print settings, it's all just a guess on how this was intended to be printed.

I made a couple of these guys! They printed well on a plate with a raft on a MakerBot Replicator. I also had issues with the eyes on the bigger one but I just cut them out and painted them in instead. I'm thinking about making them as Christmas ornaments for family.  Awesome Thing! Thanks!

Did you use support material for the legs and arms? What printer did you use? Nice print.

I did not use any support and it printed fine.  The only fragile parts are the arms even after printing,  they have broken a few times for me but I just super glue them back on. I used a MakerBot Replicator.  

 im glad you like it! :)

Just printed this on my Afinia as a single piece (NURDLE.stl) horizontally at 4.63 inches tall...it came out perfect.  I uploaded a pic.

wow, looks great! how were you able to print it horizontally as one piece? how did it deal with the overhangs?

I missed this response from months ago. Basically the Afinia (aka UP!) prints really good, easily removable support.

The print plate looks good except the eyes/goggles will require some support that may or may not me easy to remove or clean up. If you are going to break it up like that you could print the goggle without the "eye" and have some flat backed dome-topped eye inserts to go in the goggles after the fact. Also an STL of the whole assembled model would be nice.

thanks guys! I'll make the changes as soon as I get a chance :D

I just printed one and everything came out pretty well except the eyes they are a little stringy as you can tell from the photo I uploaded. I think if they were a little more bulbous so they touched the print bed they would probably print better.
