I should always check for deritives. There are some wierdness around the tenticles in the back, like they're not connected. Hard to see while you're wearing it, tho.

Love the addition of the bobbly eyeball

Very Nice model, Thanks!

Just tried slicing this using SF35 (the standard, v7 file). Lots of warnings about non-manifold issues. I would recommend washing it through netfabb's cloud print service. It fixed all the SF warnings I had.

Thanks! Version 8 is up, ran it through http://cloud.netfabb.comcloud.netfabb.com
amp; that cleaned it up

Needs to be way fewer polygons, and there is something terribly wrong with the mesh where the 'feet' meet the body.

Also, a flat bottomed one would be more convenient to print.

I can definitely do this; should be up tonight.


I printed it at .4 scale despite the minor issues and it turned out OK. Will put up pics as soon as I can find my sd card reader...

Done, I have the lowpoly version up
amp; flat-bottomed for easier print... though it doesn't cup your head quite the same.

Cool. I'll try printing it soon!

the inspired by link keeps redirecting me to spam.

Weird... I wasn't getting redirected but the link I picked wasa blog that linked to another blog, so I updated it anyway. Should go right to the http://paperkraft.netpaperkraft.net blog link now.

Works fine now.

printing now but this file needs work

I agree. I used Maya's smoothing and that has a good chance of causing problems in the model.
