What would be the correct settings for this on the Anet A8, done a few prints but just not quite right.

This is great! I've printed a number of them for my kids to share with friends at school.

Thanks for this. My son and his friend love them. Here is a full bed of them with my head remix on my Prusa MK3 with a 0.1 layer height and no support. Took 70 hours for this batch to print!

Excellent, glad they're enjoying them. I'm amazed that you printed 16 at once, that's great praise for the Prusa! Especially considering the first few layers I count 96 separate contact points that could have come undone.

Probably could have squeezed another few on if I tried, but 16 was good enough ;-)

Yeah Prusa's flexible PEI sheet is awesome for adhesion. Was just explaining how good it is to someone else. Simple prep between prints.

Happened to make these vids for the person I was explaining it to. The prep was just a wipe down with 91% IPA and you can kinda get an idea of the force I had to use to remove the heads and pins. They would have just popped right off if I flexed the sheet, but I wanted to leave the bodies in place for the pics:


This is my first printer and I'm very happy with it. It's been effortless.

Would really appreciate some details on how you did the texture. I want to remix an Enderman so it has more character.

To get this done I used a Ruby script inside of SketchUp. I first created the creeper as the simple model that it is. I then subdivided each face so that the subdivisions match the texture of the model. This is where the Ruby script comes in. I had the script to over the entire model a face at a time and had it extrude each face by a random amount. Hope this helps.

Printed great on my mp mini, my son loves it!

This is a very good build, my grandson and friends love it. Thank you

My son loves it did 300% increase

This came out great, many thanks

Anyone else get a gap in the middle of the body where the walls are really thin because of the hole for the pin? I had to make my minimum wall thickness 100% in simplify to get it to close up.

Great model indeed, the textures look quite good! I recorded a timelapse printing it in my Anet A8: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-52M_f3Smyg

Excellent model. The texture came out perfect. The grandkid will be thrilled with this.
I also had issues trying to use Slic3er. Cura on the other hand, did a great job and I was able to print that without issue.

Nice work! Ours was taken down via DMCA so we hope your stays up.

The files needed repairing by the FlashForge software I use, but they are printing great! Do they scale exactly to Minecraft Steve also posted on Thingiverse?

When open these files in Slic3r it seems like they are missing surfaces. Am I the only one?

Same issue here. Not sure what's up with that.

Great idea to replace color by depth. I'm printing this as soon as my printer is ready with its current job :)
