Description

A difficult print. It only managed to print 10% of the time for me, and your mileage may vary. I'll certainly adhere more rigidly to good FDM design next time! Let me know if there is interest in this particular character, and I'll make a more printable pose for her.

[Hatsune Miku](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hatsune_Miku) is a mascot character for the [Vocaloid](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vocaloid) software.

Original model by [Kio](http://kiomodel3.sblo.jp/article/23486819.html) and is also subject to the terms of his license.

I think it's resonable to post them so long as the owner of the copyright doesn't mind, and there was an some attempt to 3D print it ( even a failed attempt shares info back into the community )
are we allowed to post character models even if we didnt make them..? O.o
(i'd be uploading tons of them if i could...)
This was the calibration print for our brand new Form 1. Came out phenomenal.

I mostly used this pose as an excuse to experiment with various support pillaring techniques.

Flat, 1-2 filament wide columns seem to give fairly good payoff for how easy they are to remove from convex surfaces that they support. Non-convex intersections with the model required tooling or sanding. Because these pillars are long and narrow, they can easily pull themselves off the platform when the plastic cools, so it's good to boolean little cones to them, especially on the edges of a pillar.

My software can smooth out the flat sides to make her smoother, but printing her standing up will use a ton a supports. I might try having her lay on her back and see how that works.
I can import MMD models to edit and make STL files.
Fired this off on our Replicator 1 dual head using PLA. I used the non-pillared version and my own custom support lattice settings.
oh wow! It looks amazing! Does your foam support work for ABS too?
See my other model "figurine bust". it does, but the flow rates have to change a bit (PLA is more liquid, so you can keep it low and it will still draw strings to keep the foam together)
