 I agree, it is not accurate. I made it so I could get a print without support or cutting it into pieces to glue together.
for example the neck is very exaggerated, the joey would be
very hard to print without support if it was extended out like they really do.
I try to model for FFF printers, there are real limitations, and to be honest I am often frustrated by not being able to just model how I would like.
So yeah it is a trade off. the model does print reasonably well, and is recognizable as a kangaroo and Joey. but yes not artistically how I would like to model it.
lol.. good effort! better than what I could do but roo's dont sit like that and the nose is too sharp, looks like a fox head. like I said, I couldnt do it any better...

Instructions

some minor clean-up
rough spots on the steep angles of it's hind.

I went with a 0% infill and 2 shells
printed fast
only a few small top o' the model holes
and rough on the steep bottom.
ABS/acetone goop to the rescue for the holes
emery board and a few swipes and the rough is gone.
