Modeled from scratch using a 123D Catch scan of a K9 toy for reference. Some details were just ignored in the interest of making it printable on a small scale.

EDIT: MK2 prints better at small sizes. The ears don't break off.


There's a little clean up that needs to be done under the neck. I recommend you just don't look to closely there.

I had no problems with printing Mark II. He's cute. I gave him to my daughter to put on her home-office desk. She's so happy that I finally got her a dog!

No matter what I tried, MK2 prints without the top of the K. I put it through numerous apps and tried to regenerate it. Using latest Cura. I can see from the layer slicing that the top of the K is completely ignored. Ideas?

If you have the option use the print preview you can tell if it's the slicer or your printer. There's a good reason why it could be the slicer because those parts are .68mm thick walls which, if you've got a .4mm nozzle means the slicer might see that as being too thin to print (the plastic can't get in and back out) so it just ignores it. Now some slicers like makerware or to a lesser degree Simplify3D doesn't have that problem because they do what's called spurs, in other words they don't need the nozzle to get in and back out because they'll so single walls in some cases.

One solution would be to scale the whole model up by 1.25 so those walls get thick enough to print.

Ah, good points!

I was able to get it to slice correctly when I enabled Cura's black magic "Only follow the mesh surface" -- but it comes with numerous tradeoffs (including no base or priming skirt) and isn't a tenable solution.

Your scaling idea worked perfectly and is a clever hack -- I'll remember that for the future! And frankly, the K-9s are happier being larger and scarier as pawns on my chessboard.

Looks perfect, just want I want!

Printed this on my Flashforge Dreamer. After 3 failed attempts, I realised I needed some extra cooling to help with the extreme overhang of the dogs neck. After 2 fans were added, he printed fine!!

Made One but I think I need to Tweek Layers or set the Nozzel temp Higher

It was Thing # 23183. Nice job cleaning it up.
