I made this as a practice sculpt in 3dCoat. I had so much fun that I made several variants.
The print was done in clear PLA (what the machine was loaded with) and painted with rustoleum red primer and black acrylic paint. The model is a solid so if you want to make a hollow mug you must print with zero infill and zero top layers.
We talked about this thing and a whole lot more about 3d printing on the 3D Printing Today podcast available on iTunes, Stitcher radio or direct from the source at http://threedprintingtoday.libsyn.com/

UPDATE: I uploaded a hollow version which you can print with infill and top layers.

What is the volume of the cup? Is it for 500 ml?

Hello. I'm trying to make this Tiki Mug with zero top layers and zero infill but every time it leaves holes right below the eyes. This is because of the zero layers for the top. I'm using simplify3d and made 2 printing processes to try to fix this. One process has layers on the top and then switches to the second process with zero layers on top so I can have the mug's opening. The problem is it puts a top on the model when it switches to the second process. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I didn't have that problem when I printed it, but it probably depends on the printer. I uploaded a hollow version which you may have better luck with.

Thanks I will try it out tonight. I like your podcast. Listen to it every Thursday.
