Summary

--> Edit 2015-10-05: I added new files, one STL that I have thickened a bit with MeshMixer (the pumpkin face pattern inside was a bit thin in some places) and the same file but with custom support beams by MeshMixer. So you can print supportless, the support structure is a mesh of it's own that supports the pumpkin mesh. <--

This is an evil halloween pumpkin where you can put an LED light under so it will show it's true nature. The eyes and mouth are carved out on the inside!

Instructions

I hollowed out a pumpkin model (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:41194) and cut the bottom so it can be placed over an LED light.

I carved the eyes and mouth out on the inside so these areas let more light through but in daylight it looks like a normal pumpkin.

Awesome Idea, Thank you! But I can't open the Support File in S3D, Cura, or Meshmixer. Is there something different I should know?

Thanks! The version with support has objects/support beams under overhangs. So it's not a support file, you can turn off supports in your slicer.

I understand that. The STL that's supposed to have built-in supports will not load into any of the above-mentioned slicing software. Can you download the file and try it on your end? Thanks!

OK, I have downloaded it and sliced it in Simplify3D 4.0. Doesn't seem to have issues here. Maybe there is something going wrong with selecting the bodies/models. The support beams are one body that isn't connected to the pumpkin (so you could use dual extrusion also). I have added a picture so you can see the slicer view.

I downloaded it again and it worked fine. Something must have gone wrong with the first download. Thanks for your time!

OK, good to hear. If you print it and have the possibility I would love to see a picture under ''I made one''.

Just downloaded it and it loaded and sliced fine for me in S3D.

Thanks! I hope you like the model, if you can I would love to see a picture of the print ;-)

I'll be printing this with orange PLA. Do you recommend the "thinner" or "thicker" print for the most effective translucency? Does it make that much of a difference in appearance, or was the print just physically thinner than comfort allows? Thanks.

If you can see a preview in the slicer you can check. But at the time my slicer (closed source - Up Plus 3D printer) gave thicker perimeters for thicker layers so sometimes it gave holes in the thinner model.

Nice model! I like the support material that MeshMixer generated!

It's great isn't it? It was quite some tweaking before I uploaded the model but I think it was worth it.

Great idea! It was a fun, effective, and easy print. Thanks!

Love this. It printed very well.
