Two great things this weekend! We installed the fantastic E3D Cyclops Dual extrusion system:


with impressive results AND the new season of Game of Thrones is about to start.

What better way to celebrate than to release a resculpted Aria The Dragon made specially for this? The dual extrusion compatible files are:


Choose one colour for the base and eyes and another for the body. The base has a cavity to allow room for an LED should you wish to make a lamp.

For those who don't have a printer capable of dual extrusion or just want to print her in one part, then please use:


This Aria was sculpted in Blender and was based on my original Aria model. She is 13cm tall. She prints without supports.

NOTICE: The model is published under a non-commercial, non-derivatives licence. If you want to use her commercially, then please contact me beforehand and we can work something out.


NOTICE: The original files:


did not have completely flat bases. Please use:


instead. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

I used Cura to slice this. She was printed on an Aluminatus clone using the E3D Cyclops dual extrusion system.

If you want to scale the dual extrusion models, you will need to do this in context. For example, if using Netfabb, load both models at the same time. Ensure both models are selected and then scale them. Export each model separately and they will load in place.

while your design work is exemplery, your taste in shows may be off - I have heard of several of the out-right gore of imagery and attitude on 'game of throwns' and wonder why you would relish such programming ...

Could this be printed with a single extruder printer as two separate parts and assembled after?

I've never tried it, but she wasn't designed to be assembled. Usually when I make an assembly model, I allow some tolerance for fittings but as this model was designed specifically with dual extrusion in mind, this hasn't been done.

So the Cyclops is good way to print 2 colors? :)

You could do beautiful patterns for your shoe models:-)

The results are stunning. However, it is 100% not "out-of-the-box" and it took a lot of testing and configuring to get it working.
Worth the effort and the people at E3D are very knowledgable and lovely to deal with (which helps a lot).

I'm going to write a blog entry on this and once I've published, I'll post the link in the model info.

Thanks for the info. No problems about fighting with calibrations firmware already made with 2 e3d v6 and 2 my custom Bowen.

I'm waiting a Rostock Max V2 8) do you think that the cyclops can be easily mounted on this printer?
