A cartoon dinosaur I modelled and then printed in Ninjaflex (hence the 'squishy').


As with most of my organic designs, this was constructed using HyperNurbs in Cinema 4D.

The size of this model makes it very difficult to download and print. I'm not sure why you would have uploaded at the size you did, as it would be easier for everyone if you had uploaded it at even 10%.

Hi KTMan77

Yes the original design is bigger than a typical 3D printer build volume. Simply resize it prior to printing to suit the size you need - as you said 10% is a good starting point.

I printed this out at 0.02 scale to make a little 4" tall guy. I'll post my make soon.

Cool! Did you make it solid or flexible?

Both. I've printed a couple now. One was NinjaFlex, the other is a bubblegum pink I had laying around (somebody wanted a bigger one).

What settings did you use? I tried printing and the bottom half printed fine but the neck becomes a globbed mess.

Hi Bj0 - if you are talking about NinjaFlex I used the recommended settings i.e. extruder temperature of 250 and extrude speed of 30mms. Takes a while but I got perfect results. Good luck!

Woah, 250? I'm actually surprised and now I'm questioning my settings. I'm at 215 with a multiplier of 2 (I still have ooze, btw). I could try higher temp and see if the multiplier comes down. Anyway, I printed one at 1% scale (@ 50% infill, 30mms) with Ninjaflex which ended up a bit over 2" - more an accident; the head was a mess but the rest of the body finished perfectly. I'm bumping up the scale and printing again.

what measure of units am i supposed to import this in?

Hi B_Bolivio - it doesn't really matter what size you import it as you should be able to resize it as you please - but if you import it in millimeter (mm) units that will give you the actual size I designed it in - but this is likely to be too big for your 3D printer so you will need to reduce its size accordingly.
