Description

This pumpkin was modeled specifically for 3D prints. We printed at 80mm diameter on our TOM, but this Jack-o-Lantern has added detail that would look really nice on a larger print.

Thanks for the positive feedback! When designing this I enjoyed the challenge of making a fun and functional object that was, at the same time, optimized for 3D printing.

This is cool, just printed one, kids love it. This I find better than the other one that was featured, mainly because you left holes for the mouth, and you really want the light to shine out the teeth too, which you can't to with makielabs one.

Sounds great! please post a picture when you get them finished.

Instructions

The three parts are posted as seperate files, but the fully assembled model file is also here. The stem just needs a little glue to keep it on.

I'd like to see someone light this thing up!

I have one printing at 213% scale right now and it's turning out great! It's an 18 hour 20 minute print at that size, running at 50 mm/s. I plan to put a couple of LED flickering tea lights inside of several of these for Halloween this year. Thanks for a great design!

Turned out great! Long print (17 hrs) to make the pumpkin body at 16 x 16 cm, but I could easily hide a couple Arduino's inside it :)

 Wow, very nice! I think yours is the biggest one I've seen so far. Long print time. What feed rate were you running?

Time lapse video printing this on a Replicator. Thanks again for the great model. I just drop in an electric tea light from the dollar store.

I had to print 3 of these things because my daughter and her boyfriend absconded with the first two. :)

I made 4, and they are all gone! I put an electric tea light inside, they look great at night.

I printed the 3 parts at 1X scale. Great job SSW! The surface detail is very realistic, and the parts fit together nicely. The square hole underneath the stem was a nice surprise.

I tried one at 1.7X size, and ReplicatorG could not display the gcode or create the SD file. Too bad, I think this needs to be big! Could you possibly upload a version with less detail?

 Well, the bumpy surface texture was sculpted at this mesh level. Not sure what I can do and still keep enough detail. I'm thinking...

 Lookin' good! Nice to see it bigger. Is that PLA?
