Summary

Still a work in progress, as I want there to be MANY mane and tail styles and possibly a couple different poses (with associated translate keys to move the wings, horn, ears, etc) but as it is, you can definitely print ponies with or without manes and tail (I figure drill holes would be best for implanting hair), and swap in a horn or wings for pegasi, unicorns and alicorns.

Update: there are now three mane types, and three tail types. The mane/tail combos were made together, but with mix-and-match this is a total of 36 possible designs, not counting "blanking" the mane and tail to make ponies which are "doll hair ready".

I had a weird experience attempting to print this. I typically use rafts for almost everything, since I find that it helps to stabilize 3D builds - especially for things like this where there are four legs. But my builds of this pony kept failing. I finally took a look at the image with the raft and, for some reason or other, there were small rafts inserted under only two of the legs. So, when the printer attempted to print this pony, two of the legs were essentially unsupported since they were a few millimeters above the build plate (the height of the rafts the other two legs were sitting on).

When I eventually figured this out, I printed it without a raft or support, but for some reason or other one of the legs fell off during build. The front two legs form an 'A' frame and apparently one of the legs fell before the top of the 'A' was joined. I was printing it at about a 40 percent magnification.

Perhaps I'll try with a customized raft - something that would encompass all four legs - if I can figure that out.

Has anyone else had similar issues?

I raised my initial layer thickness to 0.4mm and the raft now covers the whole base. Cura -> Proneterface.

Came out spectacularly well, girlfriend ecstatic with it.

my sister will be all over coloring on one of these to look like her OC.

Ponies rock! - Very nice kit, going down well with the little ones :)

My friend, you are truly pony obsessed.

And you need more mane and tail types.
