Is this your ad on shpock or are they selling your design as their own?


Beautiful piece the right ear is a little off.. I tried to follow the link for the tinkercad but its 404

I am printing one now at 75% and I've already done one at 50% to see what it actually looks like. I'm still new to this, so I don't know how to make alterations yet. I'm wondering if anybody knows how to add a screen inside over the small hole in the back. I'm imagining a kind of thin bubble shape on the inside over the hole, with numerous holes in it - probably the same size holes as the one that's already in it. This would eliminate the need to put rocks in the bottom to prevent the single hole from clogging up over time.

Just started printing this and am noticing a couple of huge holes on the bottom. Are they there on purpose?

yup, there's a hole near his bum, it's actually for water drainage ;)

When I sliced it and while printing it with RepG there are two rather large holes on the inside. I think it is some mesh thing with the backs of his feet.

It's about halfway done printing right now but I'll post a pic when I get it done.

Ok, Here's the photos of the holes I was trying to describe.

Ahh gottcha, which verson of skin forge did you use? I could only get it to slice on 35 :-[ My heat settings were 230ext/120hbp, what were yours? The raft was stuck on bottom pretty good so I didn't remove it. I did notice a small hole on the bottom of the bong piece, but the feet came out solid. I attached a pic of the bottom and some face detail. I designed this in tinkercad https://tinkercad.com/things/hgBWm5w7KZ1https://tinkercad.com/things/h... so feel free to edit/mod

I may have to give tinkercad a shot. I've not really played around with it that much.

Would it be possible to make a non-bong version?

Absolutely 8-), I designed this on tinkercad. Feel free to tinker/edit/mod https://tinkercad.com/things/hgBWm5w7KZ1https://tinkercad.com/things/h...

links do not work

Nice! but am I the only one who noticed the Bong...

I just created a derivative without the bong.

OMG! Finally merging the 2 great obsessions of my life nepenthes carnivorous plants and 3D printing. Thanks

Neps are awesome! Cool planter design that suits the plant too.
