You're welcome!

What did you use to get that tarnished effect?

I used Gilders Paste Wax Antique Gold. I put it on a paper towel and, just using my finger, brushed it on.

lol. Best of luck with that! May I suggest one of the other files. SugarCat2 or CugarCat3?

any chance you could split this up for multi color? I would love to print the white in glow in the dark... would make a great holiday decoration

I've added two files "SugarCat Opt1 Multi1" and "SugarCat Opt1 Multi2". I don't know exactly what you need but hopefully this works for you.

that's perfect! thank you so much

This is rad. Did you print multi-filament or color/paint it afterwards? (I'm hoping for the former..)

I've added two files "SugarCat Opt1 Multi1" and "SugarCat Opt1 Multi2". I don't know exactly what you need but hopefully this works for you.

Great model. I was about to print it on my multi-material printer and discovered one minor problem. On the multi-part model, the eye holes on the white-pieces-model should be open, or a part of the other model's basic cat shape.

[Edit] After taking a better look, the entire face mask is solid, so no black will "show through." I imagine I'll just print the solid model and paint it, instead of trying to print the multi-material model.

I just uploaded "SugarCat Opt1 Multi". Would you mind taking a and letting me know if this will work, even if you don't use it. I don't have access to a multi-material printer so I'm guessing at what is needed.

I certainly appreciate your effort, but the new version produced only marginally better results. Let me see if I can put up pictures: One is your original; the other one is your updated version. These are only my first slicing attempts - I can possibly tweak the settings for better results and I'll try. I'll let you know how it works by posting a make.

BTW, congratulations on having Sugar Cat featured in Prusa's latest YouTube video!

[EDIT] -- another BTW: You don't need a multi-material printer to test your MM efforts. You can install Prusa's version of Slic3r (if you're running Windows) and if you select the MM printer, you can load all your parts in and slice - previewing the results (in colors of your choice) without having a printer. Too much instruction needed to fit in this comment, but I (or lots of other folks) can walk you through the steps to get the parts loaded and sliced. - let me know.

I've found that Slic3r's "Detect Thin Walls", which does nice stuff most of the time, does terrible things to the slicing of actual thin walls. When I turned it off, your original version worked wonderfully - attached photo. As far as I'm concerned, you can drop the updated version - though some who are valiantly trying to print the separate parts and glue them to the model might still find it useful.

Thanks for all the extra effort and sorry for my unnecessary fire drill that prompted you to do it.

No problem at all. I'm just glad to know it works. Thanks for the info on the MM. I'll have to take a look.

Printing in progress. Doing 3 since purge tower won't increase. A little stringing on the white "toes", but it's not touching the black so cleanup will be easy and an on-the-fly nozzle temp adjustment seems to have eliminated them in subsequent layers. Estimated printing time is 20 hours. ?!?

[EDIT] print completed. Make posted.
