This Chinese New Year, I thought that it would be great to have a set of Chinese Zodiac Zookins!
To summarise, they are:
Print in red filament for good luck, roll up a napkin and pop it through the hole in the zookin. Then place on the table, ready for your Chinese New Year dinner guests! You might even use them as chopstick rests!
Update 09 Feb 2013: So far there are only 2 animals in my zodiac, I will slowly work on adding the remaining 10 animals. I've been so busy getting work done before the new year that I haven't had enough time to finish the other animals or even test print the snake, and given that Chinese New Year is tomorrow, I thought that it would be better to share this now rather than wait! At the very least, you can have a table full of year of the snake Zookins for tonight's reunion dinner!
Update 07 Mar 2014: Just added the Rabbit! At this rate, I'll be done in another 9 years! LOL!
Update 11 Mar 2014 Seems the STL exporter I was using before produced STL files with problems. Just fixed the Pig and the Snake with netFabb Basic, and the Rabbit, having been exported with a different exporter seems to be ok. The older STLs with problems in the mesh have been removed.
Update 13 Jan 2015 Yahoo! I've finally finished the Rooster and added Rat! More to come!
Update 31 Mar 2015 Added Monkey and Goat.
