The model can't stand straight as the feet aren't level. When I generate supports i get some under the left feet. I loaded it into Fusion and trimmed about .2mm off the bottom of all the feet. I also noticed the dodgy ear after printing which crumbled between my fingers. So I repaired it in MeshMixer which detected a dodgy ear and something dodgy in the nose. The attached file addresses the issues... oh and I scaled it up slightly so the eggs would sit properly in the cup.

I found that the left ear is faulty, and, as Sledgehammer says, NetFabb isn't able to fix it. Shame, as it's a lovely camel, just with one earhole.....
Thanks anyway,

I try and get to look at this.
Now that people have mentioned. I think I remember early on - years ago - that this may have happen to me.

Anyway. I try and find out what's wrong.


HI.. nice camel but sadly the left ear is broken. Couldn't repair it with netfabb.

My first print attempt failed (the support under the nose came off the bed) but the second attempt worked. I printed in PLA and also noticed that the legs being skinny and PLA being brittle I broke two legs on the failed first attempt getting the support out. Being MUCH more careful on the second one, but this is probably best printed in ABS. Another issue was that I thought the support on the camel's left ear wouldn't really be necessary, but it was so I got half an ear.

Dromader or Camel? - nice

Well technically as it only has one hump it’s a Dromedary!
