I was wondering how difficult it may be to create a mashup form existing objects. As a friend just printed the Pacmac Ghost, I chose this model to start from. The result is just for pleasing your eye (or not, you decide). it has absolutely no other use :)
WARNING: This Pacman Ghost is hard to rebuild, as the model contains an error. If you really want to print your own, you most likely will have to use a dremel to remove a wall that skeinforge generates but is not in the stl.
1) Print using support â€“ otherwise you will loose the mustache (prints well in ABS, have not tried PLA).
2) Use a dremel to remove the wall in the middle of the head.
3) Carefully sand the surface a bit, using fine sandpaper (120).
4) Colorize to your liking. I sprayed it matte black and later on added gold and copper paint, using a dry brush technique.
