Summary

The original prints beautifully with ABS, but with PLA the legs broke off in my pocket. I used SketchUp to make them a couple mm thicker.

(also, "octopus" is Greek, not Latin, so you would either pluralize it as an English word, "octopuses," or a Greek word, "octopodes," pronounced "ahk-TOP-oh-dees." Not that it at all matters in the slightest.)

Love love LOVE the original.

This model is actually proving to be a pretty awesome test model for various slicing and driver technologies. Lots of complex curves with layering. As well, it tends to shake out slicers that don't have "keep the head inside" anti-stringing support! Several images, a blog post on print quality, will be along soon!

Thanks for sharing!!

Came out great on my Prusa Mendel! I can actually see the polygons from the STL in its head, they almost look like veins...

This is my favorite calibration print. Complicated enough in every axis, and even if the arms curl up, it's an Octopus, so my cow-orkers love my failed prints as desk guardians.

That's not the only change here. The head has much less over hang (and is much less alien like) so the file prints much better than the original stl

Thanks!

I modded " octopusv10block fixed sc055.stl," which already had the head with little overhang.

Works brilliantly, thanks!
