I've printed 5 of this :) Very nice! Thanks!

Size: 50%
Printer: Anycubic i3 Mega
Material: PLA / red
Temp. Nozzle: 200 °C
Temp. Heatbed: 60 °C
Support or Infill: Nope :)

Tried to run this at 125%. It needs supports.

The photo has my 100%, 133% and 180% prints; all without supports or infill. But obviously every printer model is different and settings or slicing softwares all may affect the outcome.

These were printed with delta printer, so bed and model didn't move. I did also increase layer height, so that each of them took basically same amout of time to print. Therefore my suggestion would be to try with different layer height.

Sorry for asking, but my whole family want one. Would I be breaking any rules/law if i ask for a donation to cover the cost of the filament.

May I ask please what temperature you used for the extruded?

With regular pla I use 210C and change it if print seems to have issues.

Thanks again! Came out very nice...but time to order some other colors! Orange is what came with the printer...

Hello, I am a complete newbie and made my first print today (a handle). I still have no idea what I am doing but want to learn. This Santa looks fantastic - nice job! By downloading this file, does this mean it is the G code file I simply send to my 3D printer to print.

This is stl-file, so it is a generic 3d object. You have to use a slicer to generate gcode, that is specific printing instructions for your printer.

Once you get your slicer settings adjusted, you can generate gcode for your printer with almost a single click.

Good luck with your new hobby and ask if you need more help.
