A cat made in fine layer epoxy. Looks pretty good.


the STL file should be 3D print ready as long as no adjustments are made

love it imaterialise!!!
good job!!!

It tried this with Slic3r but had problems printing. The rear feet came out one layer off the ground so the rear legs did not stick to the printer bed. Also, the join between the tail and body is very weak with a cavity inside the join area and a notch at the top.

For some reason i cant open this with slic3r or with 3DS max... way too many polygons i think :) Can you upload the original or lower detail version? would love to try to print this to my GF

Hi - when I get a chance, I'll try to add some more cats that are more fluid and less rigid appearing.

I can't believe this is the only good cat model on all of Thingiverse! It is a good one, though. I printed it out and tested support on a Makerbot for my first time...

Most of the support snapped right off with my fingers, the part under the belly I just had to twist a screwdriver in and it too popped right off cleanly.

Then I chopped it clean with an X-acto, rubbed it with sandpaper for a minute, and washed it in a jar of acetone for about 30s.
