I tried this, top half works out fine, the bottom is a complete mess. I have a UP2 and I doubt if it would be up to the tentacles.
This is an amazing contribution to this community, and i for one would like to thank you. It is commercial quality and you clearly have put much work into this design - well done. I am currently printing the top, although not so sure as to best to print the bottom, but whether i am successful or not doesn't change your excellent art or valuable contribution..... i will look out for any otherPS - if anyone has successfully printed the low portion, any tips would be very much appreciated :)
btw the top piece prints fine in PLA on a makerbot though you need to scale it down about 10 percent in size.

I printed with no supports using glow in the dark blue PLA

couple shots. sorry for potato... i figure i'll worry about getting lighting / photos right once I do the lower part. that could be a bit more difficult to lay out on the makerbot. also i have some ideas for modification.

Instructions

The minimum thickness in this model is approximately 1mm.
It has been upladed so that you can print it on your 3D printer (for non-commercial use).

If you want to use it for purposes other than mentioned here please contact me.

It is best to print the model in two parts as illustrated part A and part B, I just originally combined it all in to one file so that it can be downloaded as a single item.....update
Now I have also added the two files separately for added convenience :) Thanks for suggestions!

When printing the bottom half do you need to invert the model to print? Do you use supports?
Hi, I'm not sure - I had this print professionally done by Shapeways, and it's my first upload to Thingiverse - just thought I'd share the design.

I see the files, thanks!
Beautiful! I really want to print this.

Yes, two separate files would be more convenient. The tools most of use can't split parts out of a single file. Thingiverse has a neat feature where if you have several STL files for one Thing, they automatically create a zip file so that they can be downloaded in one file, then you can unzip the file to get to the individual STL files.

Also, can you share what material and settings you used to print this?
Hi Laird, This print is professionally done by Shapeways in their 'White Strong and Flexible' material (SLS nylon plastic). I'll upload the two separate files for this model also, thanks for the tip about multiple files :)
Do you have this loaded into Shapeways? It might be interesting to price out...
I have it for sale on Shapeways in two parts shpws.me/nqLO
Also the separate parts are now ready here on Thingiverse
Thanks!
Thanks!

That explains how you got all of the nice swoopy shapes to print. It'll be a challenge to print with an extrusion printer (Makerbot). But I'm going to try - I think this would look amazing in PLA.
Let me know how you go, best of luck! :)
Hi SystemsGuy, It is designed in two parts, I just popped it in to one file to save people downloading 2 separate files...Would 2 separate files be more convenient?
Interesting design. Might be more printable if you designed it in two parts - body and tentacles. As is, will take more support than model to print!
Done, uploaded separately now :)
I think I am going to give this a go on a replicator 2. 600 USD is a bit outside my budget =P

The top seems printable. The lower might need the chains and dangly bits broken out and laid down horizontal like.

If I get this to work, are you cool with me posting a derivative ( again with the non commercial ).
Yes cool with posting a derivative ,
