Basic Male Form by Erik Nov 26, 2010

Featured Thing!

Description

We had been printing the pink panther woman a few times, but sometimes women would ask why we didn't print any male forms. Yesterday nicholasclewis uploaded this wonderful model. The vertices were very much visible, so I subdivided them a few times and performed a smoothing operation in Meshlab (open source!). There are some other files by nicholasclewis that are not in this derivative post, so be sure to check out those, too!
The model is a little 'dirty' because I was still flushing out some black ABS which keeps coming out of the nozzle even after printing hundreds of grams of PLA. Also, this really made the extrusion less smooth than it could be.

I had problems with old black dirtying my models at random intervals - turned out my hobbed bolt was clogged up with black, and every now and then a flake would come off and end up in the hotend. Solution was to clean the hobbed bolt with a dry toothbrush. I wonder if you were having a similar problem.

Instructions

It was printed on the ultimaker.com (as well as the lady in transparent PLA).

You may have to rescale it to fit in your printer. The STL currently is a little under 21 cm high. Print time was 7 hours (three shells and low infill). It also printed a 'skeleton' inside.
Here's a movie of it being printed:
