Model of a shabti / ushabti, a funerary figure of ancient Egypt which was placed in a tomb with the deceased occupant. It was expected to take human form in the afterlife and serve it's master.

Quite a few of the models are available on the University of Birmingham (UK) web site, see link below.



There are three stl's.
A complete one and the same model split roughly in half.
The complete one needs a support structure wheras the split one doesn't however you may have issues joining the two halves, I had to fill in the gaps with a filler before painting.
If the half models warp a little so the flat sides do not touch I have found a little trick to help (probably only works with pla).
Put the halves together and wrap an elastic band tightly round each end.
Dip one end in hot water, enough to soften the plastic.
the elastic should bring the two halves in contact but you can help by gently squeezing them together.
Repeat for the other end.

Thank you for this model. I used it in a set of Egyptian Dungeon Terrain. https://skfb.ly/6tZMw

Looks like they have removed the 3d models, I have no connection with them so no idea where they might be now.

I don't see the model files on the UoB website. Have they been moved?

I printed this with 1mm clipped from the bottom of the model, standing right way up.
