Now with anatomically pleasing "Siphony-Action"!!! Two flavors - smooth and ringed!
I have been cranking out legion octopi as a resolution and cooling test object for the last few weeks. I love this little guy and I hand him out as a 3D printing ambassador!
I made a few changes to the original cephalopod:
- smoothed and enlarged the mantle ++ cuteness
- new siphon / funnel, as found on real octopi
- cavity for 8 X 3 mm rare earth magnet
- optional ringed ornamentation on mantle

I found that the rear of the mantle cooled best (PLA) when rotated to the side, so that fan-borne air can better circulate around the edge.
