Odile is a character from the ballet "Swan Lake". She is the daughter of Von Rothbart, the evil sorcerer who turned the Princess Odette into a swan. Odette has a champion in Prince Siegfried who is in love with her, but Odile is sent by her father to seduce Seigfried, so he will forget his love for Odette. Odile is commonly known as the Black Swan, but of course, you can print her any colour that you like.
There is a lack of 3D printable swans and definitely those that can be printed without supports - so I made one. Full size she is about 8cm high but scales well. The small dark blue Odile was printed using a beta LittleRP resin printer (http://www.littlerp.com/) with MakerJuice (http://www.makerjuice.com/)
For scale, the little Odile is sitting on a US quarter and is next to a British 10 pence piece.
Odile was modeled in Blender.


She prints as she is and should not require supports.

I have tried 10 time to print with not one good print the head will not connect to neck ;(

Can you provide more information? Does it snap off during the print (if so, you may wnt to consider slow your print down). Does the model gcode have the head connected? This model works, even printer companies like Monoprice ship it with their printers as an example model (although illegally I might add). Its going to boil down to working what is happening with your print and tuning accordingly.

This seems to be the same swan as the example gcode from the Monoprice Maker Select.

Yes - Monoprice are using my model without my permission.

what resolution did you use? IE, layer heights and printer speed

Fabulous, printed one scale 1/2 with PLA 0,08 layer, no infill, 3 perimeters.

Now we need Odile with Adalinda's upturned head ;)

Do you mean a swan with an upturned head or some kind of Adalinda/Odile chimera?:-)

Definitely chimera :) perhaps tail too!

I don't know how you do this, but I'm sure glad you do.

Very nice work!

Thank you. Kind words indeed.

Beautiful work, as usual. Adding this to my queue....

Many thanks!

The world needs more swans. Well, the pretty and noble ones from story books and music. The big mean ones that hiss and chase you if you don't give them snacks, can go elsewhere:-)

Yes! I love swans. Real, actual swans? Not so much.
