good to know.. even my stupid asian relatives think its the laughing Buddha and say rubbing his belly will bring wealth ><
Just an FYI that this Hotei, The Spirit of Money! Not THE Buddha. Thanks for my friends in pointing this out. In my Google search he is often referred to as "laughing buddha" to make it even more confusion. Either way I think it brings good luck to print and carry one around!

Which printer are you printing with? I used the Afinia I didn't have any problems what so ever.
Having all sorts of trouble with this print. Something hinky happens in the slice (either with slic3r or skeinforge) and the print comes out all sorts of messed up. Will play with meshlab and see if I can figure out what the problem is
Anyone? I have tried 3 different slicers with this model and every single one produces a gcode that makes the printer freak out on the very first layer.
Framingr, I was having the same problem with it going crazy on the first few layers. It's because the bottom of the file is not flat at all and is rather lumpy, so it tries to print small islands first. I chopped a little off the bottom to get a flat base, and it is printing fine now. The modified file can be found here thingiverse.com/thing:50280
