I was watching Mythbusters and I thought hang on.. Jamie really does look like a Walrus..

And there you go.

Using the primoz method of spiral 0.6mm threads I just did the whiskers.

I need to re-add the tusks but create manual supports for them so you do not have to generate supports, this was more the test print to ensure the whiskers worked.

  • Print with good infill or alot of top layers, my print was a quick test with 3% infill, I would go 20% for the next one.

  • I used hot water to shape the whiskers, but I know hairdryers work well.

The hair does have a split down in between the lips, it can bit a tad tricky to pull sideways but using the hot water method I was able to dunk and rebend many times and did not have one breakage.

Yes I can supply the dual extrusion version and probably will upload it tomorrow.

Just tried this model in S3D and Cura and the hairs are not appearing.. How to fix this?

It would have to be a slicer setting - you need to have walls 0.6 not 0.8

hmmm this makes me think of Unicorn manes/tails and gnome beards cant be far off in the future.

they are not difficult to add to a model, how about we do the unicorn next.

That walrus needs a beret!

I printed him but the whiskers were not there? lol I have a whiskerless walrus

I would say a slicer issue- all I did to print mine was increase bridging speed to 150% and nothing else I changed, no supports etc.

haha fun idea! who wants a hairy LION when you can have a WALRUS!
