Hello, everyone. Could someone please tell me how they got beyond 60% and the two center post did not break. Also, I had a lot of retraction problems... Please help, if you can. I am a total newbie...

I wanted to print this to put my maker coins in, but even at 200% I think the coin slot will be too narrow. my coins are about 7mm thick. Anyone know how I can modify the slot width easily?

try tinkercad or fusion 360.

Thank you very much, It very nice!

Printed 200% with 4walls on a creator pro and had problems like the others. You can see my pics

Gah this is killing me, been haunting my dreams. Turns out the supports in the center of the big (the two tall sticks) are the ones getting knocked, so I've been experimenting with making the entire print 2 processes in Simply3d. This way I can force the base of those pillars to be solid.

Yet it still broke, so now I'm setting the minimum infill length to 2mm as it was 5mm before and those pillars were hollow and brittle.

You can see here http://imgur.com/DvqtIYY

The base of those pillars are now a solid green, and there's orange infill working it's way up

Was able to reprint it at 100% almost perfectly.

At first I had the same problems had with the sides breaking and whatnot. Now they don't break but the center coin-rails are still a bit wacky and I'm working to improve it

What I did to tweak it


  • Added a 0.2mm z-hop
  • Added coasting of 0.1mm
  • Added wipe-nozzle of 5mm (default)

I think the problem was while it was printing, blobs were left on there which slowly increase the height and at one point the nozzle was hitting the model and causing it to snap off

15 pigs later, still can't get it to work, keeps snapping off the same two pegs in the center

Making the 2 center arms completely solid
Slowing down the print
Different temperatures
Different sizes

Such sadness :(

Was Creator Pro Flashforge

amazing, No problems!!! Thanks

I had no Problems with print - came out perfect - Printed in Red PETG - I added pics and settings... Thank you

Very hard to print, even on my decently calibrated delta. Lots and lots of retractions that causes small bubbles and make the walls very fragile.
I used Colorfabb ngen material that usually supports 70° overhangs with little to no problem, but in this case retractions + overhangs seem to be too much for my printer.

Maybe i should print it slower, i'm printing at 70mm/s and i see you recommend 50mm/s.

Can you please tell me the settings you put before creating G-code: Travel feedrate. feedrate. number of shells, infill. height

Thank you

I have an ultimater 2 plus, printed in normal setting. Layers at 0.15 and at 50mm speed. Used cura to splice it. 20% infill, no support.

Brilliant, made 2 now on Ultimaker 2+. Very strong design and great looking pig. Wouldn't change anything. Thanks for the upload.

Printed pretty well and easily at 75% scale with my prusa i3 but I will print it soon at 100%
(I was testing a free sample filament and I did not had enough length for 100%. As expected 75% is too small for some coins)

Thank you very much for this great design !

Very hard to do ... when it passes 60% has very narrow parts that break during printing. I QUIT!

Came out great unfortunately it does not accept Canadian loonies and toonies

How large can you scale it before coins start falling through?

Just uploaded new STLs. There are now two different versions available.

I have tried printing this 2 times on my Makerfarm Pegasus which prints everything usually pretty awesome. The 1st I scaled up to 120% and on 1 layer something happened and while it finished printing the interior coin slot columns didn't print right. That finished a roll of Toner Plastics PLA, so I tried last night at 100% scale using inland pla and the exterior printed awesome, but again those damn towers didn't print.

i'm pretty sad lol while the 100% one I can still display as a desk piece and a bank w/out the slot I just want it to print right!

Pretty nice design. Just one question, how big is it?

In the photo in the Thing Details, it shows a picture of 3 of them, they look to be about 5x5 inches?

Love this design. Going for a print soon. Thanks for the work you do for the community MakerBot!
