Summary

A basic man made as a test using MakeHuman. makehuman.org/

I made this in an effort to explore printing the human form on my printer and to learn how to use MakeHuman.

The .obj file has the whole body while the .stl files are just torsos.

If you look at the .obj file it has jaw bones, teeth, eyes, and extra "joints" (little closed polyhedrons floating inside). I believe I removed all of those extra bits in the "test2.stl" although they did not cause me problems when printing the "test1.stl"

Instructions

I found it was best to print this upside down (hence the number 2 stl file). All the pictures are of hollow prints (no infill...)

Awesome! We have a few women printed, but we needed some guys too to be politically correct ;)

Thanks for providing this! Human forms indeed are nice subjects for 3D printing.

Does anyone know a way to have double shells without further infill? You can turn of the infill completely, but this leaves you with just a single shell. Having multiple will greatly improve the way we can have overhangs... Of course we could shell the STL and make it two layers thick, but that se
ems like a dirty workaround.

I have printed with 2 shells and 0.05 infill and that went well. I have never explored how low you could set the infill though.

Intriguing. The STL has 11 extraneous part shells, little octahedron-shaped things that seem to mark the locations of joints in the skeleton. There are also 33 unmatched triangle edges, but I don't think it hurts the model's build-ability. But I've got to build it just to sure...

I had just started a build on my SD300, but I canceled it to add this model. I scaled it down and chopped it to fit within the job's existing volume so it won't look exactly like your sample.

If you look at the .obj file it has jaw bones, teeth, eyes, and extra "joints" (little closed polyhedrons floating inside). I believe I removed all of those extra bits in the "test2.stl" although they did not cause me problems when printing the "test1.stl" :)

Sure enough, the minor errors don't cause any problems. I reduced it from 10cm to 2cm and built it in transparent PVC. It looks pretty spectacular.

There's a short movie of the model on a multi-color light table at...

What kind of printer did you use? That is a very nice print. :)

I should have followed your link before asking... I see it is a Solido SD300. Very cool.
