Meet Ollie. Ollie is the 232nd in my sister's line of custom one-of-a-kind ceramic creatures (and probably the first to be freed to roam the internet). I got permission from my sister to scan Ollie and release him to the Thingiverse community (She doesn't know about the beefy arms, T-rex remixes, or the other terrible things that can happen to him here though so don't tell her).

The original ceramic Ollie is in the center, left Ollie is in Colorfabb copperfill PLA, right Ollie is in Proto Pasta Stainless Steel PLA. Pictures of the unpolished prints are also included for the curious.

If you want your own unique spirit creature, you may be able to capture one at Arroyo General in Los Angeles or online at KnotworkLA.

Any attribution should be to Linda Hsiao and KnotworkLA.


Ollie may need some support inside his mouth and under his tail when printing.

What did you use to scan him?

A NextEngine scanner at the Tech Shop.

How did you polish Ollie?

I mostly used a steel kitchen sponge and sandpaper (150/1000 grit). I also tried Brasso metal polish, but it didn't have any effect. I'll probably try using a tumbler with brass screws next time though.
