Steampunk Owl Ornament by dutchmogul Dec 20, 2012

Description

Happy Holidays everyone!

Though I don't generally dabble in seasonal pieces, I figured I'd make a nice and secular ornament. Hang it from whatever takes your fancy! It makes a decent little statue any time of the year too, I suppose. Just clip off the loop at the back of his scarf.

This guy is my one and only entry for the ProtoParadigm December Design contest. Jump on this if you get the chance. There's 3 days left! protoparadigm.com/blog/2012/12/december-design-contest-win-a-years-of-plastic/

Hey, thanks, dude! That means a lot to me.

Yeah, I use a Makerbot Replicator too. To be honest, I'm not certain that mine likes that layer height either, especially in PLA. I've gone through more plungers than I should have in the short time I've had it. But, I think its worth it. I'm considering modding my machine to change the filament intake, though I'm not yet sure how I should go about it/if its worthwhile.

Your creations are unbelievable! I wish you best of luck with your game. Looks like you have spent a lot of time designing all of this.

What I am curious about is: What kind of equipment do you use? I have access to a Makerbot Replicator (with standard 0,4mm nozzle) and this thing really does not like .10 layer hight. Especially when printing PLA as hot as you are doing. Are there any tricks that you like to share maybe?

Thanks, man!
