Thing, Because Thingirverse rocks!

This is my attempt to capture Ben Grim the thing
(from the fantastic four comics)

Modeled in sculptris
I used netfab to fix it for watertight mesh


I personally thing infill would be beneficial for this model.

Size big, cause well it's the thing and he's big.

Just ordered some nylon 618. Looking forward to it! Thanks for the heads up. Any pointers?

i am a nylon newbie. I initially used 245 degrees at 80mm/sec 60degrees platform .
I used blue tape, but i am going to try the perfboard soon.
Also i had the filament jam using the vacuform dispenser it comes in,
I will transfer to a spool but that might require some method of keeping the filament from bird-caging (maybe a peice of soft foam)

I can say it seems less inclined to delamination and is very strong. I have not dyed it yet but that is a really nice bonus.
I actually deliberately destroyed a print to get a feel for the strength of the nylon, and it really is impressive.
downsides, gluing is not a good option, holes from printing would be difficult to seal ( i am going to rig up a hot glue gun type of rig for gluing and fill-ins)
of course screws and even nylon rivets are an option.
I just think it's great as a different medium than ABS and PLA.
frankly I had good luck in a cold garage on the few tests so far. I am more inclined to use it in lieu of PLA.Hope this long winded answer helps a bit. no look thru
Benito's models for lots of good info as well as Taulman's website.

I just wanted to say I appreciate all of the terrible puns. Santa Claws/ Bear Claus is my favourite thus far.

Thanks, I try to add a little humor to lighten things up.
Terrible puns just seem to come easily to me.
But thanks for saying that, not sure how they are received.

Ha, I opened this model not because I wanted to print it but because I want to say your description made me chuckle.
