Baby Groot's head has been hollowed out so he can be used as a planter for Tillandsia sp. "air plants". Air plants are widely available at retail and via the internet. They're very hardy and fairly low-maintenance, and as their name suggests, they need no soil.

Thanks to the original artist Byambaa for sharing this wonderful sculpt.

Fixed by Netfabb Online Service for Slic3r

So it will Print perfectly now? with out the missing layers? Thanks for all you do

I have lots of missing parts after puting it into slic3r :-( Ive printed the original one, had no issues there

I probably decimated it with MeshLab in order to get it into TinkerCad, so that may be the problem. The Zortrax slicer had no problem with it. Maybe run some kind of mesh repair on it.

I use Meshlab. Under the Remeshing & Simplification menu, choose "Quadratic Edge Collapse Decimation". Enter a smaller number in the "Number of Faces" field and see how big the resulting file is. Messing with the other settings has never proven fruitful for me.

Printed out great on my Lulzbot Mini using Gizmo Dorks Wood Filament. I'm wanting to do the same thing with Byambaa's waving version but I use Tinkercad (I'm a total novice at this stuff) and Tinkercad only allows 25 mb files and the waving version is 95 mb. Any suggestions on what to use to hollow out the head since I apparently can't use Tinkercad.

Hey, tried to print it. It seems like some layers (only a few) are missing. Tried with slic3er for prusa. The 3d modell is allright, but after slicing it seems to be damaged or broken

For me it loads in Slic3r 1.2.9 with a LOT of sections missing. Repertier flags it as "not manifold" and suggests repair. I've loaded it in Cura 3.2.1 and it looks solid. I'm printing it now...

I made one whith HBP filament

Someone else selling your work

Sorry to see

It's not really my design, all I did was hollow out the head. The original is from Byambaa:

Cool thanks..was jist sharing

Not sure if the link has changed since you posted it, but it is clearly not the same model...

Model has very nice quality. Can be printed without supports. In scale up to 200% looks good.

I have printed 4 now, each different sizes and they all look great. Thank you.
