This is my #RemixChallenge entry!
I've added a long snout for your Toothbrush! Now you can save on toothpaste and bring your toothbrush with you on your travels. I've kept the original design mostly the same, and created a Piggy for your toothbrush
I've designed every overhang to be at least 45 degress so that no support material is needed.
How I Designed the Toothbrush Holder
I loved the original design so I wanted to keep alot of it the same. I made every new fillet the same radius as the original design, as well as kept the thickness of the model the same. I had to recreate the design in AutoCAD since it was very difficult for me to modify the original .STL files. You can see in my progress pictures how I managed to overlay my drawing with the original model to create a picture perfect mirror image of the animal. After I had recreated the original model I began researching into the average size of toothbrush heads, which is how I came to use the models dimensions. At first, I was going to make the "snout" more squarish but after printing it, I found it did not match the style of the original animals very well - So I gave the snout a rounded edge and gave it nostrils. To support the bridge of the snout I included a 45 degree ramp so that no support material would be needed.

The dimensions of the original model were very easy to mimic, since almost every value was rounded to the nearest milimeter

Mirroring the face to create a symmetrical face
Extruding the face
I did not like the square nose, so I made the top round with the snout and added nostrils
