Today we're bringing you a 3D printed Stitch from the Disney movie Lilo and Stitch. Stitch is such an iconic character, and it was really fun to make into a full figure.

I modeled the whole thing in ZBrush in one sitting. It took about 6 hours from start to finish. I mostly used Dynamesh and just move things around until I get them looking right. Then I exported the model and cut off the bottom with Meshmixer so it would sit on the bed and print a bit easier.

I've included both the cut off model and the full model just in case someone wants to print it in a different orientation. I printed it on the CR10 at a 0.5mm layer height. It came out really good on top and really bad on the bottom.

Chelsey had to file and sand the crap out of it to smooth out the rough areas, and there were actually a few areas towards the bottom that she had to use putty to basically resculpt the geometry to make it look right. But she did an amazing job.

After that she primed it with filler primer, used an airbrush to paint on the main blue, then filled in all the details with acrylic paints and a paint brush. Then after the whole thing was dry she sprayed a glossy clear coat on it.

Printer: Creality CR-10
Filament: BamTak Gold PLA
Layer Height: 0.05mm
Supports: Yes

I just recently subscribe to your YouTube channel after seeing the cool Volkswagen project! Chesley did an amazing job on the post processing.

Could you explain what is is being applied to the model between support snipping and painting? Why do you use it? Is it mostly for smoothing the surface for painting, or for the "rough" spots near the bottom mentioned in your description?
Sorry I only ask because I'm new to printing and was wondering if that was something I need to be doing to my prints.

Hey I thought the CR-10 was capable of .1 how did you get .05?

I love this file I've tried cura and meshmixer and can't seem to get the supports in any help would be nice

I printed mine with 10%, but probably could have done without with the four perimeters that I used.

thanks well four perimeters what nice for the sanding have to do thow

Beautiful model and your wife did an amazing job painting as usual!

I saw your ".5mm" layer height in your description and made a face. .05mm makes much more sense.

it is .05:P its so fine:)
