I love the model, but in the front legs only the finger tips are touching the build plate on layer 1 and it ruins the print for me when it tries to print the palms on the air during the third/forth layer :/
How do you guys solve this issue?

That's not a problem other people have mentioned having. Perhaps you can use a software program such as the free Microsoft 3D Builder to "drop" it flat onto your bed.Or you could stick a couple of small pieces of tape in the area where the palms would be.

I've edited as you suggested and I could print it without problems, thanks!

Thanks for the tips! I'll try that :)

Très chouette ce gecko. Ne pas imprimer avec brim, c'est inutile et tellement plus facile de ne rien enlever surtout en filaflex.

Hello!

3d print newbie here. :)
One Question: Does this need support? Reason I'm asking is, it doesn't look on the first view so, but the front legs are slightly raised, in Cura, beginning with layer 5 (0,1mm layer height, 0,2 for the first) it looks like a "relative" long bridging. Does this print fine or better do supports?

Thx for any answer in advance.

I always print it without supports or raft. On every printer I've tried (which is quite a few at this point), it has printed fine. If you have trouble, slow down the print speed. Good luck!

Thx for your reply!
I actually tried it (scaled 1.5) on my Anycubic mega and it printed indeed just fine.

Thanks for the great model ModernGnome, I have remixed it to be used as a fridge magnet for my kids - check the remix tab!

Perfect and amazing, very good job.

I had a lot of issues printing this until I realized I was not getting good enough adhesion with the print bed. Invariably one of the feet would get loose and end up where it shouldn't. A quick squirt of hair spray on the print bed (already covered in kapton tape) completely solved this issue and now is prints quite nicely (I have printed it successfully at 1x, 1.2x, and 1.5x scale).

This printed out quite easily and nicely for me. Just 1 comment :)

Could you raise the height of the rear legs so that it's in the same plane as the front legs and body? When I printed this, my slicer (slic3r) basically thought that only the rear feet were touching the plate, and it even made a skirt around just the rear feet. Then it would move the z-axis up a little and lay down the rest of it, right overtop of the skirt! (had to yank the skirt off rear under-belly of the gecko). Surprisingly, the rest printed ok, even though the front feet's first layer wasn't laid down with the "first layer". I thought it would rip off for sure, but it didn't :)

Anyways, sorry, long-winded comment :)

The feet are now level and completely flat on the bottom. Thanks for noticing.

Much better. Thanks! I made one at 150% the original size. Came out fantastic!

My ultimate goal is to make a bunch of them in glow-in-the-dark filament and stick them to my 3 year old son's wall. I think he'd love it! :)
