A (loose) interpretation of Totoro from Miyazaki's My Neighbor Totoro. Inspired by a friend's sketch.
Printed on my Replicator:
100 micron resolution.
External Support (Might work without any support, but I haven't tried it)
A cool trick I did on a couple of these is I paused it at around 25% and added some iron filings, both to give it some heft and to add a cool sound when you shake it :). I got the idea when the support structures failed (but not the print itself), and the printer started knocking small bits of filament into the infill.
I haven't had enough time to try the acetone vapor bath method for finishing, but that's definitely in the future for this print!
PS Modelled in Sculptris, exported to MeshLab, and then sliced w/ Replicatorg
