Summary

This is a MINI version of the Carla character from the book LEO the Maker Prince:
http://www.leothemakerprince.com
http://www.amazon.com/LEO-Maker-Prince-Journeys-Printing/dp/1457183145
Carla had wanted to become an artist when she grew up. She became an accountant instead. Then Carla's calm life of numbers and "sense" was upended. She met LEO, the Maker Prince. And through LEO's magic, 3D printing, Carla finally became the artist she'd long ago wished to be.

Instructions

Print the pieces and then they snap together. Be careful of the arms as it's easy to mistake them for the support material and snap them off inadvertently.

Note: this is a MINI version of the Carla character from the book LEO the Maker Prince. http://www.amazon.com/LEO-Maker-Prince-Journeys-Printing/dp/1457183145

Its parts should fit in a large gumball capsule.

OK, great! I've also had success in doing demos with the shaker instrument (there's a trapezoidal shaped one and an egg-shaped one). It makes for a really interactive demo because it's pretty quick and lets kids get involved. The idea is that you pause the print half way through and add rice to the inside, then resume the print and the rice gets trapped inside. Just be sure to print it with no fill!

That's awesome! Thanks for letting me know! And yes, everyone loves the sheep. I know that a lot of the prints take a while, so I'm uploading these miniatures so that people can use them for faster demos. Let me know if you have any more feedback. I'm always happy to hear from readers and makers!

I have another demo Monday night, don't know if they'll have books this time, but I'll have these new models along just in case. Thanks!

I recently did a 3D printing demo at our local library and they gave away 5 copies of your book as door prizes for coming. The kids really seemed to like it, especially when I had printed sheep with me.
