I am only just "starting" my endeavour in 3d printing; my first tech will be an up mini (saving for a dual flash forge :-)) a personal project of mine is making a tree branch for a bird puppet. you sir have given me EXACTLY what I want to base it on! thanks for the awesome.

How to print this? I'll got my new CubeX today or tomorrow and want to try dualstrusion with this model, but I don't think it'll be very cool with such model arrangement. Maybe you have any instructions, or plate .stl? Thanks for the model! ;)

Hello :) I have a UP! Mini and the software does the slicing automatically, also it generates good support where needed automatically. That's the only experience I have with 3D printing so I'm a bit at loss on how to tell you how to print this on a CubeX. I did rotate the Gnome on it's back to have less support. The bars and endstops are easy to print I think. I didn't have time to come up with something easier although, as an alternative you could put of bit thick string as a rope through the holes :) You would have a real swing with ropes ;-) Let me know if you run into any trouble, if I can help, I will.

The addition of the tree is amazing!
