I was having some problems getting the original to slice properly on my setup, so I fixed the .STL file (there was a big hole below one of the feet resulting in a non-watertight model) and simplified the model a little to help slice faster.

I noticed many other people posting that they were having problems so I thought I would repost this "fixed" version of this very nice 3d model. I hope this helps the rest of you that were having problems like I was.


fixed and simplified in meshmixer and netfabb.

is it necessary to print support for this pair of owls?

no... most people find it prints great without any supports.

I tried the original and like many others, and it crashed slic3r. I saw your comment and decided to try this one. I am getting my printer ready now. It was able to slice and pronterface is not slow, so signs are looking good. Thank you!

Worked really well on a Printrbot 2014 simple. Thanks for sharing the fixed model.

Thanks for fixing it up. I hope this makes it easier to populate the world with plastic owls ;-)

I have been using owls as test prints just so I have a common base to compare different settings. I thin I have a full parliament at this point! :)
