On a whim I designed a simple giraffe model. In the ^H hackerspace in Portland Oregon, some 3d printed zebra decorate a room, they looked like they needed a friend. The zebra have a new 3d printed friend. (It was a Mr. Rogers Moment). I am really happy with the design, although I might remix this so it is thinner, and make a version where the front legs are flat.
The printer I used to print this has a stringing problem (likely the print head was too hot. I did turn on supports in Cura, but the model should be able to be printed without supports, The angle on the front legs is 60 Degrees, and should print just fine without supports

This model is really simple, and should print on any printer, with any filament, at almost any setting. There is tolerance built in for material expansion differences. at 5 MM thick it does take a surprising length of time to print. If anyone is interested or asks, I'll remix at 3 mm, and without angled legs.
NOTE. the legs are designed such that the nose of the Giraffe fits under them for printing. I don't think it is quite clear from the photo of the finished model on the print plate.

Designed to assemble and look fabulous right off the printer
I created a silhouette and outline in a 2d program called Silhouette Studio, similar to Adobe Illustrator, but specifically designed for Silhouette's Cameo brand of desktop CnC. Exported as STL, pulled into tinkercad, made the interlocks and printed.
Really, Tinkercad FTW. If you used tinkercad in the past, like when it was first released, check it out again, Massive improvements. (I am in no way associated with Tinkercad or Autodesk)
