I detailed Bre's scan of a plaster deer head. I left it full poly, 330k, since it's still 1/3 of the count of the Black Dynamite bust (which I can only assume is the standard:). I also added a hole on the back for hanging it in your den.
Made for my 1.5yo daughter who is obsessed with deer and bats. She loves little animal models, I love printing things with the Replicator. It's a symbiotic relationship.


Printed on a Replicator. Created the .s3g file with ReplicatorG set to default settings w/ raft and support. At full scale, it maxes out the print size.

How big is this head,I have a small printer,Anet A8..................

Thank you so much.

Excellent. Thank you so much.

Great Design! I printed it at around 1/10th scale and it took an hour on a 5th Gen Replicator.

Takeshi - do you a step file or another type of part file that I could use?

It won't print without supports. I've printed it multiple times with MakerWare:Replicator2 PLA - 10 hours 15 minutes. Looks gorgeous :)

Does anyone know if this thing will print without support?

What is the support material used?

Deer Head model took 8 hrs 49 mins to run with a build layer of .34mm. and 10% infill. My machine is a Replicator 1 Dual, with Firmware 6.2. Makerware w/ MiracleGrue processed the ~80M Stl in about 10 mins on my fast machine, about 18 on my laptop (running Vista!). A couple of times it failed to write the output file (laptop only).There are some poor surface finishes on overhangs, but that is to be expected with .34 layers. It seems that the support separation is a bit large, which could contribute. The Deer Head model has a Keyhole notch on the back for hanging. Nice touch!

By far the biggest and longest build I've completed so far.


That is one angry looking deer head!
