This is an extension from the popular octopus thick legs. We made room for a magnet to fit, such that it will be snug to your fridge.
Also available for purchase at http://etsy.me/14Iw4gs
It was made to fit with 1/2-Inch by 1/16-Inch Rare Earth Disc Magnets
Also, find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/carry.the.what.replications


  1. Print the STL with minimal support.
  2. On the magnet hole on the underside of the octopus, either apply superglue or a few drops of acetone.
  3. Insert magnet -- but be careful! it's a snug fit, so especially in the case of acetone, beware the acetone might splash out (you do not want this in your eyes)

I got my machine tuned just right to print these real fast.

Thank you so much for the file. It printed beautifully for me!

I hope it gets printed by my teacher it is so cool......

Hi there, can anyone give me their approximate print times/ plastic types and the physical dimensions of this little beast please?

It's about 95mm in diameter, and about 1-2 hr print depending on settings, and about 15-20g in material. Hope this helps!

I cant get the legs to come out properly, when he extruder is back tracking sometimes the leg gets stuck to it and breaks off. Can any one help me?
my specs are
Extruder - 250
Bed- 90
Feedrate - 100
Flow Rate 100
Fill - .6

All went with my PLA print apart from above the eyes. It steps in too quickly at each layer. Anyone know if this is likely a slic3r error? I can see the steps via the Pronteface preview
