Summary

Update 7/30- Added a version without pins for those who asked. Also added a second version of the original re-oriented and with larger, flatter base on the bottom piece.

If anyone wants to remix this thing to close with a lip instead of pins please let me know and I'll post the eggs before I added the pins.

Printed using PLA at 2.0 mm without supports and scaled to to over 1000%. Print the base standing straight up and print the top with the wide end on the platform. I used Simplify3D to make 1 process with 50% infill for 10mm on the base of the bottom so it has some more weight and less likely to tip. The rest printed with 20% infill.

I made one of these, scaled at 45%, (just uploaded the make) and wanted to add that the upper part (with pins) seems to be minimally angled so that the first layer will not be sliced as a complete circle when printing at 0.15 layer height! See the added screenshot.

I had to level the object Z = -0.05mm to make the slicer put a complete circle on the bed for the first layer.

Hello, did you ever have the chance to upload a whole egg? Without the sliced top/bottom? I would really like to try and print this for LED lights :)

I would also like to get a copy of the model without the pins. Thanks!

Thanks! And congrats on the little one!

Hi, i love the look of this.You mention about remixing to add a lip instead of pins. I'd like to give this a go if you don't mind. Could you upload the files before the pins were added as you mentioned?

I think this dragon egg looks the best of them all, very nicely done indeed :-)

Sorry for the delay, my wife and I just had a baby so it's been a little crazy around here. A version without the pins has been added.

Congratulations on your baby!!!!! :-)
And thank you for the upload without pins.

what did you use to design this? I'd like to create a version which screws closed

Combination of tools, mostly meshmixer and sculptris then added pins on tinkercad. I just uploaded a version without pins so feel free to edit it.

Hey could you do a version that isn't cut in half? My printer has a bed area that's 400mm tall, and can easily print the whole thing without that line in the middle. Plus, the top isn't quite thick enough-- both of the prints I've done had 1.5mm holes in the top. Adding more layers there would help.

Sure, I'll try to do it later today.

What do you mean by 2mm resolution? Layer height? Nozzle size?

Also, how does one get the pieces level on the bed? Neither the top nor bottom sections seem to have a completely flat surface.

2mm layer height. You shouldn't need to really do much to get them level on the bed, I just rotated the bottom -90 degrees and the top +90 degrees and it all printed fine.

Do you mean ".2mm layer height"? 2mm layer height would be really tall given the largest commercial nozzle in use is the 1.2mm volcano, and the most it can do is 1mm layer height.

Getting the top part level on the bed (i.e. without bridging) was difficult because the bottom of the top section isn't flat. I had to sink it in the bed by 1mm to get it even all around.

Thanks so much for uploading the model. The bottom printed last night, and the top is half-way done.

Already bought this iron PLA to give it an old look on the next print.

Sorry, you're right, I meant .2mm layer height. I'm using a flashforge finder with a .40 nozzle. My max build size is 140x140x140 so I ended up scaling it up to 1081%, which is just shy of 140.

Please post a picture with that iron pla, I'm curious how it'll look.

Sure, will do. I've got a 300x300x400mm build area, and so won't be scaling it up to fit the space :-)

Awesome, I'm jealous!
