This model is based on Left Shark Monochrome by cerberus333. I pulled the original model in to MeshMixer and extracted sections to be printed using a dual extrusion printer.

I've included a body with and without MeshMixer generated supports. I had luck printing the body with supports, print support-less at your own risk!

I've documented my workflow in this blog post: http://thenewhobbyist.com/2015/02/printing-extrusion-confusion/

As well as the accompanying youtube tutorial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSCr0SnwA-Q


  1. Assign one model to each extruder
  2. Print
  3. Awkwardly dance
