Endangered Species: Rhino
by AK_Eric, published
I tried to minimize overhang issues by tracking the angle of the edges via a Python script in Maya. Very little cleanup was needed after print: No raft or support material needed.
The frame is actually a pattern I drew on some scrap MDF (nothing 3d printed there) , jigsawed out, and then routed the edges plus slapped on some white paint. Print is affixed via epoxy.
The rhino I painted red on the inside, and sprayed rubberized black undercoating on the outside.
Alternatively, some people see a penguin walking up the wall. Once you see it, you can't unsee it....

No sanding or anything: Spray-painted the whole thing red (Rustoleum), then after that dried shot the rubberized under-coating (any auto-parts store) on it as an experiment. PLA takes spray-paint just fine with no priming. Don't be afraid, just aim a spray-can at it and have a go! ;)
Sure, what I mean is;
Did u sand it? Undercoat it? what sort of paint? Brush or spray? I'm in mechanical engineering, so I can fix anything that breaks on my machine but haven't got a clue when it comes to painting and post-processing of finished parts!
