How do you paint the mouth / eyes / tongue? I tried different kinds of markers, but they all run along the printing lines and now my cat looks like a very sad emo-cat!

I coated the model before i painted it.

If the eyes were separate, you could print it with fuzzy skin!

Thanks for this cool model! I've tested arround with support and the best result I've got with "Support Overhang Angle" = 80°. The only support will appear on the raised forepaw. All of the other overhangs are looking good.

Danke nochmal für das wirklich geile Figürchen! :)

Having trouble printing the ears. They always make a hole on the left ear. Used Cura and Simplify3d. Do you have any settings i can use please?

Do you print with enough top layers? I would say at least 5 with a 0.2 layerhight. Part cooling fan at 100%. Maybe try printing slower.

Thanks for the info. I'm still learning how to handle the printer. Printed like 5 cats already

I got this linked by my mother, kid you not. Course I got the hint. So I plan to utilize my Taz 6's size and make a huge one!

Yes! Please make a huge one! I want to see it

What is the better infill?

The important thing is rhat the inner part of the mouth have support.

Vielen Dank für das klasse Modell von Simons Cat :)

Konnte es ohne Supports drucken.

Ich habe einen Remix von diesem Remix gemacht und es ist so eine schöne Kopie, dass meine Tochter mit Vergnügen lachte, als ich ihr einen gab. Danke für das Original!

Thought you may be german, but I guess that last post was you doing the same for Dogs2305. Anyhow my daughter loves this thing. I remixed it with a unicorn horn for her. Thanks so much for your hard work on the original

Bei mir steht jetzt auch eine im Kühlschrank!

Kannst ja gerne mal n Bild hochladen.

Gut so, da gehört se hin! :D

Nicely done. Will print it very soon. Thanks for the this very good implementation of Simon´s Cat

Danke und viel Spaß mit der Katze.

fine on PLAY @ 190C with no supports many thanks

how did you colorize it? mine is looking weird now xD

I printed my cat in white petg and then i coated it with PU (from trollfactory on amazon) then its much easier to paint.

I love it :) Is there a chance that you could make a money box from it? I would definitely put my money in to his mouth ;)

Damn... where is the rest of my text?
I tested it and i think this is not possible with this cat. If i woul make a 35mm slot in the mouth the cat would be arount 300mm in length. thats to huge for a normal printer :(
i know on amazon you can get a simons cat money box, but i think they are pretty ugly.
at the moment i´m working on brian griffin. and the next thing is the simon´s cat hedgehog. i hole you are interested.

At first thanks

this is fantastic, please do more Simon's Cat

Nice model! Already printed it. Will share as soon as it's painted :)

Hi Stefan, support is needed ?

I printed with petg and 60% fan speed. maybe you dont need support with pla and 100% fan speed.

I am testing on Prusa MK2S without supports now, I will update with results as soon as I find out!!!
