I wanted to print this Tentacle for so long but I had to wait to get the correct colours in PLA - Now you can get PRINCELY PURPLE and VILLAGE GREEN from the very nice people at www.Faberdashery.co.uk and make your very own evil tentacle to rule the world.

He was a little too tall for my printer so instead of making him smaller I made him BIGGER and split him in half, behold a monster tentacle !

For a little history of why this tentacle is so great look here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maniac_Mansion

And then play DOTT... and yes I can help you when you get stuck in the game.


He also doubles as a musical instrument as long as you print him hollow and fill him with something to rattle. I used Hama beads you can use whatever you like. - It adds to the general scariness of this evil monster if you shake him at someone!

I printed him at 80mm/sec 0% infill so you get a nice hollow body.

I love this print, Awsome!

Thanks, I'm glad you like it.

i'm just wondering how did you glue the tentacle together?

I used super-glue,on all the parts except for the base but I would not recommend using it as it leaves white marks.

I now use Gorilla Glue (not too much) and clamp it in place, take a little more time but worth it.
