Another totem pole that I've had for a number of years. Notice what one of the entities is holding in his hands.


Print it with minimal fill 10-15% and the rest defaults should produce a nice print. The measurements according to NetFabb are 5" (125mm) in the z-axis, an 1" (28mm) on the y-axis and 2.25" (60mm) at the base in the x-axis direction.

I would love to use part of this totem pole for a gadget I am making for our local scout camp. I download the stl but I can't seem to import it with the Sketchup extension. Sketchup just hangs with a spinning timer. Any ideas?

Secondly, is this proper? Is it okay to use someone's art and modify it. I can download and print the thing, but I can't seem to download the .stl for the purpose of modifying it (using just part of it).

Thanks for any help you can give.

If you download the model you should be able to see it, i was using netFabb to look at it instead of repG.
Thanks cassetti, let me know how it looks when you print it. I will if I can ever get a printer functioning again :)

Netfabb is all we use. Our guesses are in descending order of likelihood: A matryoshka doll, A baby, A cocktail shaker, a fire hydrant, an Oscar (tm). :-) Unless you mean the knee holder guy. In that case it's knees.

 All good guesses but me thinks them wrong, some people may in fact refer to it as an Oscar but not the Oscar. Instead, me thinks it is a genuine body part, disproportionately large but that's why he is at the top of the pole (ah, another name for it - pole).
I used the NextEngine HD scanner along with ScanStudio, NetFabb and Meshlab to make it printable. Great scanner but I still need more experience and knowledge on using the associated software - its a really nice and powerful package.

As soon as I saw this posted, I knew it was you ha ha

Can't really see what it is holding. Picture is a bit darka dn the model isn't detailed enough. Is it another Totem pole? Inception-Totem!
