My print Has really strong magnets I epoxied to the bottom
so it stands very stable on a metal object.
but if It was as big as you are intending I would need some really big magnets!

Took a long time slicing the file totemkit.stl

I am adding the individual elements separately.

Included the g-code and s3g files because it tool so long to slice.
These files are specific to the replicator with the accelerated setup
(Marlin) It pretty much fills the build plate.
my settings for the code and print were
0% infill
2 shells
.27 slice
230 degrees 80mm/sec

Also i did this
in skeinforge (50)
Solid Surface Thickness (layers)
i have set to 5.
seems to help on the flat topped models (sometimes anyhow)

for non replicator printers,
either resize and slice the totemkit.stl
(if you want all the pieces in one print) or use the seperate
stl files and size them the same for consistency ( or not if you just want a specific part)
I have added a cut up eagle to allow the wings to fit for a larger scaled print
( i had a comment that they wished they could print this as big as possible)

my print is very light for it's size (106 grams).
The fully assembled totem is over 41cm / 16 inches
I glued mine and put magnets on the base. it will stand without a base, but it is top heavy. some base mounting would be advisable if gluing.

ok so iam making this about 32 inches high iam trying to figure out how to do a base for it any ideas?

I added a base but i did not size it, so you can use it and resize.
Or just use a wooden base and glue it to it.
a slice of a log would be a good fit.

I added a couple features to the fill plugin in skeinforge, based on the issues I had with printing out these totems with flat tops. The details and plugin are here:


But basically, you can just set the top and bottom thickness you want in mm, and skeinforge will adjust the amount of solid surface layers to match, based on your current layer thickness. It works great for me.

This looks like a really useful plugin. I am still using marlin, and the craft_plugins dir/folder has a fill.py already. I am renaming the existing one and putting the new one in and will try it out.
