Really a nice model and effect, should be easy to reproduce the glitch, just making it in ABS without covering the printer with the nylon bag.

I made a BIG 120% sized print, he looks great, thanks for uploading such a great model :)

Slic3r had no problems - 12% infill, just a single outline and two solid layers, it used 42M of 3mm Filament! -

The first 12mm is with clear PLA to see it I can still see the roots of the plant growing.
The rest is Printed using Glowbug Yellow - (Glow-in-the-dark!) 3mm Filament from www.faberdas

I have a problem with making this
… It looks awesome, and the 'splinter effect' looks interesting.

When using ReplicaterG 0034 on mac with Skeinforge 47 scale 1 then ReplicatorG say there's a problem and the Gcode is not created…

Does anyone have the same problem or have a solution? how did you print it?

I tried making the GC
ode where I scaled the model 0,1 (i think) and it worked?

Awsome design, so can't wait to make this :)

The STL file here isn't 'clean', it has a few areas where there are overlapping polys (particularly the feet). Simplify3D has a go at slicing this but there are a few holes in surfaces and some of the upper layers (where it's doing the eyes) have layers completely missing.

I've taken it into some other 3D software I use to try and fix the model but there's too many errors. This has been modelled from separate primatives then not unioned together using booles but exported as a load of different objects with their geometry remaining - it's not solid.

Would you mind updating your STL to include the splits?


Wow, The cracks absolutely make this print! True work of Art!

I just wanted to say the same! Very nice print...

Cool, I thought the cracks were part of the design first of all, they should be, looks awesome.

I need a super-sized one of these in my life.

my grade school art teacher used to tell us to turn our mistakes into masterpieces and i think we have a prime example right here.

Yeah, I was looking at the cracks and thinking "Impressive overhangs there, I need to see how he did that". But man, it looks GREAT.

Thanks guys! it wasn't intential at first, but the brown color really completes the effect. Mistakes can turn out to be cool sometimes, Bonsai!

we got this effect by misaligning platform ;)

Agreed. The splits give it a weathered wood look. Nice use of the medium's inherent properties to add an artistic effect!

First time I've ever seen "layer gaps" really add on to a print itself, looks awesome!

I'd actually recommend not trying to fix the splits in this print. The glitches look awesome!
