Everybody has one. Now you can make your own!

This was a learning exercise to get a feel for Sculptris and Meshmixer - turns out there was no reason not to try them, as these tool are very easy to get into.

Whatever the heck a "Plumbus" is, I found its physical properties to be a bit offensive.

I do not know what you mean. But if you think this is a adult toy, it isn't. Here is the manual.


It's called sarcasm. I was joking :)

Damn, luckily you know how to use it ... the right way...

i cannot print the chumble. it just creates a column of melted plastic for me. several attempts using different slicer settings and filaments.

also, i love your youtube channel!

The chumble file is broken. says file is unreadable. any chance you might know the issue?

i cannot print the chumble either. it just creates a column of melted plastic for me. several attempts using different slicer settings and filaments.

Hi, I've added a simplified version of the Chumble! It still needs support to print well, though

Great model! I liked that you added you the "veins" and it looks the most organic of the models on thingiverse. Great pictures and well made video as well. Thanks for the model. Will be printing soon.

the tail with the ball is missing

it's on the Grumbo

Greetings Tom, is this the wrong place to ask you question about printing settings on dual extruders?

I was wondering so hard what a plumbus actually is while watching the video.

This helped me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMJk4y9NGvE

I always wondered how they made those!

Love the utube channel. Keep up the good work. J

I was going to ask Mr. Meeseeks to design this! :) nice job!

Super cool idea and fun part to 3D print! Thanks Thomas for making and sharing the files of the Plumbus :)
