I was given a Creality CR-10 to play with, so I wanted something to test. The included sample file is apparently a 10 hour print, so I didn't want to jump in with that. I want to do another Baby Groot (I gave mine away), but was impatient to see how the printer did, so I made it smaller.

I've included 3 sizes, plus the version I was scaling before drilling the holes.

Print Settings


Creality CR-10






.2mm (Standard)




This was my test piece for my new Creality CR-10. I figured infill didn't matter much, could probably do without it, but I set it to 15% just for grins.

Printed in PLA with no modifications to the stock printer on the included painter's type tape.

I use Simplify 3D for most of my printing, and it has a profile for the CR-10. By default it wanted 2400mm/min, which is slower than my other printer's 3600mm/min. I didn't like how slow the first print was, so I changed it to 3600mm/min for the second print.

It took ~1.5 hours to print a small + large keychain version at the 3600mm/min (60mm/second) setting.

Full disclosure: Gearbest gave me the CR-10, so I feel sort of obligated to put it through it's paces.

How I Designed This

I took the other Baby Groot's, shoved the head onto the body in Microsoft 3D Builder, got rid of a ton of the polygons, and then shoved a hole in it's head.

The 30mm tall one seemed a bit small, so I made a 60mm version. That seems a little big, so there's a 45mm version as well. They're all just scaled versions of each other, except for where I manually placed the hole. I also included my starting point without the hole as a 3D Builder 3mf file.

3D Builder seems pretty good for these kinds of simple mashups.

I like this pose, but it might not be the best for a keychain the way the fingers poke out, I may need to try a different version.
