After over a year of being gone, I am back! With my return I have brought the project that has kept me quiet for the past year. Yes that's right, it is the Krusty Krab as a piggy bank! An idea that I got almost immediately after I finished Spongebob's House. This is by far the most complicated design I have ever done with almost 100 Fusion 360 sketches!! However, I believe that I have captured every detail from rivets on the chimney to the correct order of nautical flags to the joint lines made by the wood panels on the roof. And yes I did put a tiny burger sign in the window! I know this design may have some fallacies when comparing this design to that of some of the episodes. However, to you Spongebob Squarepants fans this is a great way to show your enjoyment for your show and stash your coins. Don't worry Mr. Krabs will keep your life savings safe. Hope you enjoy! :)
*Just as a warning I do not recommend picking "the best restaurant in Bikini Bottom" from the top half because the pieces don't lock completely and with the weight of the coins the bottom half of the Krusty Krab could fall.

GP3D Wood Composite
I printed this model at 75% of its original size to save time and do not recommend going any smaller so that all coins can still fit through the slot.
You only need supports on the top half of the print where it overhangs.
The roof spike is very difficult to print because it is insanely delicate. I would not worry about this detail unless you feel up to the challenge in which case you may need supports on it.
This is a very large print so I do recommend scaling it down to 75% unless you would enjoy the full size which means a larger coin slot and greater carrying capacity.
This model was by far the hardest 3D model I have ever designed. I used Fusion 360, and created almost 100 sketches to capture the Krusty Krab in all its detail! Furthermore, at one point the design had 78 individual bodies!
With all these entities I was able to create the Krusty Krab and incorporated every detail from rivets to the correct order of the nautical flags to the sign of the burger seen in the window as seen on the show.
My advice to anyone who wants to attempt a complicated design; Use a lot of sketches. A sketch for every detail, and stay organized with your bodies and priorities. Details come last, structure is always first!
