I was wondering would it be ok if I used you're model as my logo for YouTube. I enjoy the look of this model and how simple it is. I've already printed 5 for me and some of my friends.

In principle, I don't mind you using my design as your logo. However, I only added a monocle, I did not add the top hat, and I guess the rest of the model goes way back too...

what a great little model! Now all my grand kids will want one!

Capital model. Now to find a cuppa for him.

How well does this scale? I'm really wanting to print a Flexi that fills the Ender 3 bed (around 9x9 square)

I've printed things like this on the same ender 3 model printer (it's more like 7 by 7) and they all have scales up well so I'm around 90% sure this will to!

I like to print these smaller - 75% or so. Someone has printed the original at 275%, and showed it off on Reddit earlier today. The hat makes the head heavier, so don't overdo the infill. Give it a try, and post a make!

I was able to get it to print at 250% with 5% infill. It is very sturdy and not head heavy at all. I'm thinking I may do one more and try to make it upwards of 300%. When I printed this one i had clips holding the glass bed in place, but I'm working to be able to remove those to gain some room back on my bed.

So classy ! Dig it ! Good work mate :)

That’s mint! Did you remodel the whole Rex and add the top hat or is there a way to import an SLT file into CAD software and edit it from there?

Hey, I added the top-hat (and bow) to the original, and he added the monocle, most cad software should accept .stl files as an import option, you will probably not be able to change things parametrically, but adding and removing stuff should work just fine :)

Yep, you're right. I designed the monocle in SolidEdge, and exported it as a .STL file. I then used the 3D builder included in Win10 to merge the two files.

The hardest part was scaling my monocle to the model. I print most of my Flexi-Rexes at 75% scale to save filament (and time), and so when I drew and exported the monocle, it was too small. Luckily 3D builder lets you scale objects in place.

My next plan is to do the monocle in a different colour filament, so it looks extra distinguished.

I love 3D Builder for basic stuff. It's cool that MS is on the bandwagon.

Hahaha! Lovley! :) thank you for sharing this! ^^
