This is a derivative of ALLIGATOR by b65isp on blendswap.com at http://www.blendswap.com/3D-models/animals/alligator/

The original artist never intended this to be a physical thing, but it prints fairly well with only minor modifications to the original.

Really cool model! I would love to print it, but when slicing it, the g-code ends upp with making a tower on the head and back/body. Anybody else had this problem with slic3r?

That means there's a hole in the model somewhere. Slic3r sucks at plugging them, so it just fills the area in with a solid cube. Clean it up by running it through http://cloud.netfabb.comcloud.netfabb.com

I had no problems printing with ReplicatorG and MakerWare. Sometimes when models don't slice right, I've found it helps to move the model slightly in the X &Y coordinates, or rotate the model slightly on the Z axis. Sometimes just moving the model a bit allows the slicer to get the math right.

That's quite a hard pint! this was my second go after the first failed to stick to the bed.

I got a shock when I came back after he had printed, the jaws pop out at you from the build surface!

He has light green feet and underbelly (Faberdashery Village green) and the body is in Greenery Green
60mm/sec print speed with 0.5 nozzle and 0.3layers.

Thanks for the model!

how much would you charge to do 3d printing?

What machine did you print this one? Did you use supports?

I modified the original design to increase the angle of the head, but a few points in the neck are still greater than 45 degrees. This was printed on a MakerBot CNC with the standard build platform. There are a couple of points in the neck where the overhang was too great for the machine, but the print essentially self-corrected, resulting in a basically successful print with a couple loops hanging off the neck.

(No supports)
