This is my second model for a 3d printer and I tried to use my experience with the first model (thanks for all the tips!) to give this one a better start.

Updated information will be posted in the Instructions below.

It's another little pet monster for the 3D Artist Mag contest and it's supposed to be a decoration item.

Please let me know if there are issues with this model, I'll try to fix it.

I don't own a 3d printer so I'm not sure if everything is as it should be.

Best regards,


The model is supposed to be printed in one piece.

Update 1: Added higher resolutions.
-> HiRes (227456 triangles)
-> HiHiRes (458966 triangles)

Please let me know what you think, thanks! :)

Technical details:

Triangles: 59130
Number of shells:1
Surface area: 38.81cm2
Volume: 11.72cm3
Outbox: 36.8 x 50.0 x 24.7 mm

thank you for sharing, my kids love them !

thank andreas. It's very pretty ^^!

No worries, you don't have to! ;)

Congratulations on winning, you made a awesome job with your pet monsters. Have fun with the MakerBot :D

Thank you very much, I'm looking forward to it :)

Congrats on the win man! you have some great stuff!

Thanks Matt! I've enjoyed your designs, too! I hope we'll see more of them :)

Nice! My son has been asking to paint the ones I printed for him...we may just have to do this... :-D

Awesome, I'm looking forward to it! :)

What do you use to paint the model?

Acrylic paint - Lascaux brand if it matters - and a glossy varnish (haven't applied it yet). I'm going to be traveling next week, so we'll see what I can do before I leave.

The link in my comment above will show you the mostly done version. I need to sleep on it before I decide if I'm going to add anything else. :)

How about some glow in the dark on the next one?

I was hoping that by leaving the bottom of a clear print unpainted, that if I shined a light up through it it would light up all cool like... didn't really work that way. But, glow in the dark paints sounds like a fun idea =)

I have some glow in the dark ABS I got to do some aliens with. Haven't gotten my printer tuned for ABS yet, but will.

Very Nice model. It loks Great in Purple ABS

Printed on Prusa Mendel.

Now to build an ARMY!!!!

I've started my army. I've printed one in silver ABS, which rocks, and another in glow-in-the-dark ABS. I'll post a picture of the glowy one as soon as I figure out how to take pictures in the dark. This is a great showpiece when friends ask "What can you make with a 3D printer?"

The color looks great indeed! Thanks for sharing your result :)

And what a fine army that yould be, goggling and drooling all day long ;)

Have you thought about doing a model (maybe this one) to be printed in pieces and assembled? It would allow people to print parts in colors and then assemble them. The horns, teeth and eye in this one could be printed in white. The tongue would be tricky to print by itself but not impossible. Perhaps a flat could be added to the hidden back of the tongue and laid down. Just a thought.

Don't look at what the object is, but how could you construct it and still get the surface to look the same.

The printed shape wouldn't have to be the same shape as an actual tounge. It just has to fit in the void of the center object and the part that shows would be tounge-like.

The same as the center doesn't have to be the shape of the tongue-less creature. It could have a wedge shape void. Think of how a staircase would look if it wasn't attached to a house - it had to support itself. Or half a pyramid.

Acutally I thought about that. A problem would be that those models aren't build for that so I'd have to tweak them somewhat. I'll try to get some more information about that topic and perhaps I will do something like that in the near future.

Very nice job. I love it.

Thank you! :)
