I printed 5 of these rather hastily to prepare for a Detective Pikachu movie day with some 9/10 yos. I printed at 50% scale and default Draft settings in Cura and while they were a hit with the kids for the movie, they don't last terribly long. With these settings, the tail snaps off pretty easily. I also had some trouble removing the supports. Would recommend trying it at full scale.

Printed this at 50% scaling and it came out amazing!

Just in case anyone might try it, we printed this at .25 scale and it seemed like it probably didn't scale to such a small size very well. We were looking for a quick-printing test file, so we kept looking, but it's such a cute design, we may come back and try it again when we have more time (probably larger, or fuss with other settings). .25 took about 25 minutes, which was great, but the bottom half of the pikachu had a tough time.

You can look at my post, The feet are so small in that scale so I rotated the tail up and scaled it in Maya and printed standing on backfeet - it works :)

Looks great! What settings did you use to print it? Also, are you planning on uploading the Pumpkaboo model by any chance?

I did it at .25mm layer height with a .6mm volcano nozzle at 40mm/sec. Do you want the pumpkaboo? If so ill upload it.

Great, thanks! I'm assuming you left it in that orientation and used a raft and supports? Yes, I'd love to see the pumpkaboo if you don't mind uploading it.

Here is the link for the Pumpkaboo, add a base if you like or just let me know if you want me to add one. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1732580

Pumpkaboo

I used supports but with the coating I have on my print bed a raft isn't necessary. I will have it up soon.
