Description

Left and right ears, derived from the excellent BodyParts3D database. Used Netfabb's Van Gogh algorithm to slice these off cleanly, so they should be easy to print.

For the one pictured here, I used Cura to slice at 0.1mm layer height, and printed with PLA at 190C on at 60C heated build platform. Temperature was too low, and there was some slipping, so the quality isn't perfect.
