Any luck with prints at all? Any piece requests or modifications? Cheers!

This is a cool concept. Sort of like Mr. Potato head, but no potato. 8-)

One thing that would definitely interest others in your "thing" would be to contain all the files in one ZIP folder for easy download, but also keep the individual files or new files listed below.

Added a zip. Is there anyway to get it so the new files shows at the top instead of the bottom?

Love these designs! I'd add a comment about design towards printing. For most DIY printers support is dodgey at best so it's generally best to design the model with an eye for printablity. Looking for extreme overhangs or totally unsupported features. I like that the parts are all "in place" I was hoping I could load the head, ears and mouth and hit print, but the mouth and ears I wanted (the troll-ish ones) wont print without some fancy support. Though it does look like the cat ears and mouth might work, though I'm not sure how I'm going to print the base head. Since the parts are modular the other way to design them would be to rotate them and give them flat bases and print them separately. Thanks for great looking models. :)

Thanks! I will create a printer bed file if that will help people where I lay the parts flat down. It would be nice tho if you could layer select your parts and just hit print and instance, presto creature. They you wouldn't have to worry about fitting it all together. Tho I don't think unless I adjust the holes that it would pose-able then.

If you let me know some of the standard bed sizes people are working with I will try to lay them out for a build. I designed them more as build pieces than assemble so they can be super customizable Also will be adding another tail tonight I believe. I need testers to see if these guy are make-able! So then I can make the need change so you all have creatures!! Cheers!

I added the parts flat in a step and stl for convenience. If you have tips on supports for makebot and other please let me know. Do they need to be joined to the part they are supporting and how can you create a clean break line? Would be be better to set them up like an air-fit kit where you snap the parts off of a runner? Anyway thanks for input!
