We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
As I continue to learn and explore the capabilities of ZBrush, I keep returning to these alien creations. Some day I will figure out why. I certainly enjoy the contrast between a pure geometric shape like a sphere with an organic creature that could be a plant or a many armed thing.
I used ReplicatorG to prepare the file, a MakerBot Replicator2 with the Replicator 2 slicing defaults and the following settings with white ProtoParadigm PLA to do the printing:
Infill = 10%
Layer Height = 0.200
Shells = 1
Feedrate = 40
Travel Feed = 55
Temperature = 220
I used a raft with full support.
