I made Dorus a while back, based on my little Blu character (same feet!).

If you like Dorus... Also meet his buddy Manus the Minotaur!

You can help me make more free stuff by buying a full colour Dorus via my shop at Shapeways

BTW: Dorus features on the official Blender for 3D Printing dvd I released with the Blender foundation.

The initial model was unstable, and couldn't be printed on an extrusion printer.

So now... say hello to Supportless Dorus. I modified him specifically so he can be printed in one go on my Replicator 1. I'm pretty sure he can be printed on any machine.

Great design, I love the fact it support itself.

I'm not sure if you realised, but the normals on the model are reversed. BTW, my kids love this one, they keep trying to snatch it out of the printer and its only halfway done ;)

Hi there,

I am wondering if anyone can offer some guidance for me. I am trying to print Dorus but the model starts to get droopy around the bottom of wings and mouth area. Any idea of cause/advice on how to prevent this?
I am using an Imaginator3D.

Thank You!

kwalla: That's because for your setup the "overhang" is a bit much. Sometimes printing with thinner layers can help. Or... if you're using pla... some extra cooling (maybe a fan). But mostly it's about layer height vs how much material is extruded.... though for this model... most printers should be able to handle it without much tweaking.

wow, i had thought the picture with the green background was a render until clicking for the large version and seeing the print layers. awesome job!

Printed very well with .2mm res and 10% infil with 2 shells. No support required.
