Chameleon Pen Holder (High-Res)

The idea is not new and there is already one remix available but I wanted more smooth surface and bigger plus centered hole for the pen.
(hole diameter : 10mm)

for bigger pens simple scale it up (example:12mm Hole scale up 120%)

prints fine without support

Thanks goes to Ishibashi-san (bs3) for the design

2-Color Tree Frog

This treefrog is based on a recently discovered species called the Tiger's Treefrog (Hyloscirtus tigrinus) which has an incredible maze-like pattern on its skin. Hyloscirtus tigrinus lives in the rainforests of Ecuador and Colombia and is exceedingly rare. Scientists estimate there are only 250 adult tiger's treefrogs alive today.
You can see some pictures of them here
http://www.arkive.org/tigers-treefrog/hyloscirtus-tigrinus/

Files

I've uploaded two different frogs, one for printing big and one for printing small. The frogs are designed for dual extrusion 3d-printers and are each composed of two files: a "hollow" one and a "solid" one. If your printer only has single extruder, you could print the "solid" half by itself to make a 1-color frog.

Print Settings

This is designed to be printed with no supports. We used Makerware's medium settings to print the frog in ABS on our Makerbot Replicator 1 (2 shells, .2mm layer height and 10% infill).
Slicing warning: this takes a while to slice! The frogs took us 13 minutes to slice with .2mm layers in Makerware.

Design

I modeled the body in Blender from photographs of Hyloscirtus tigrinus and the pattern was generated using a simulation of reaction-diffusion.

Loggerhead Sea Turtle (poseable)

A model loggerhead turtle with moveable flippers. You could call it an "action figure", but there's a distinct absence of mutation and/or martial arts training for this little guy!

All four flippers are attached by ball joints that are captured during the printing process. The front and back halves of the model snap together with the included H-clip.

Some cool info about loggerheads: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isjxWHoMz1E

Just want to print it?
Then "Loggerhead_plated.STL" is the file for you!

Switch off automatic supports in your slicer software. There are only two supports needed and they're included in the STL. Don't forget to snap them off with pliers after printing.

Plate it yourself? Dual Extruder? Soluble supports?
Download "Loggerhead_unplated.zip" and may The Force be with you.

Instructions

The model is designed to print with only two supports (included in the STL) for the rear flipper ball joints in the back half of the model.

After printing the back half its supports should be removed with pointy-nosed pliers. You should see a kind of crown pattern where the support and and the ball meet. It doesn't really matter if you can't get the whole support out - the back flippers will still move, but not quite as much.

The joints have a 0.5mm clearance when printed at 100% scale, which should be fine for most printers. If they feel too loose after printing then try heating the model and pressing the surrounding plastic to tighten the socket.

Depending on your printer and slicer calibration the very first layer may fuse the ball and socket together in the front half of the model. If this happens then carefully cut through to the gap with a hobby knife after printing. Update: I have uploaded a version designed to minimise any first layer fusing (see Loggerhead_NoFuseJoints_plated.STL).

The two halves will join together best if the surface between them is perfectly flat. For this reason I would suggest printing without a raft if possible (or sanding off any marks it leaves).

Winnie the Pooh

Winnie-the-Pooh, also called Pooh Bear, is a fictional anthropomorphic teddy bear created by English author A. A. Milne.

A. A. Milne named the character Winnie-the-Pooh after a teddy bear owned by his son, Christopher Robin Milne, who was the basis for the character Christopher Robin. The rest of Christopher Robin Milne's toys – Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, and Tigger – were incorporated into Milne's stories. Two more characters, Owl and Rabbit, were created by Milne's imagination, while Gopher was added to the Disney version.

No supports are required. If you have the proper filament colors, no painting is needed.

The assembled model is 140mm tall

**Note: Even though my slicer had no issues with this model, I found that other slicers did not handle some parts well. I updated three parts and added "_new" to them. If you have any slicing issues, please download these parts. I've removed the original ones.

Enjoy!

Printing and assembly tips

Printing tips
1-As with most of my models, I strive to make all the pieces support free. The interesting thing about this model is that I initially could not design the head piece completely support free around the mouth area. When it came time to print the head, I'm so used to not using supports that I forgot to add the supports to the mouth area. The head printed fine anyway, with a few loose strands in the mouth section that get covered by the tongue.stl part anyway.

2-The parts should fit nicely when printed cleanly or with a slight first layer squish.

3-Please not that due to the texture on all the body parts, print time is increased. Be patient printing those parts.

4-Due to the texture complexity of the body parts, slicing may take longer than expected. Again, be patient and you should have no issue with your slicer.

..
Assembly tips:
1-The left/right eye pieces are slightly different, but are small enough to be interchangeable. I post all my parts exactly as modeled.

2-The hunny_text letters are intentionally printed reversed. I find that they fit better with the flat side facing out. Since the letters are being attached to a slightly curved surface it is a good idea to bend the individual letters slightly before gluing them on to the jar.

3-Refer to the assembly diagram for putting the model together. The model is meant to be glued.

Floppy Dragonfly

I wanted to create a dragonfly model since my daughter and I found a dead dragonfly this summer.

The overall proportions are based on the one we found. I tried to create a pattern for the wings which is similar to the real thing but with less detail to make it printable.

Quite happy how it turned out :)


Update Oct. 16th 2018
The front wings of the patterned model were partially lifted (about 0.13 mm) above the the rest. Fixed and updated the stl. Thanks to jerzone for letting me know in the comments!

Update Oct. 18th 2018
Made some small clean-ups to the patterned wings again, hopefully all slicers will work now without issues! No need to update if the previous version sliced correctly for you.
Thanks to ericleejoe for reporting the problem with S3D slicer in the comments.

Update Oct. 19th 2018
Another small fix specific to Simplify 3D slicer. Welded the hanger hole piece to the tip of the tail instead of just having them overlap.

RATZ

'RATZ' are a fun print that can become quite addictive. it's all to easy to end up with a 'RATZ' infested house. There are two options provided. The 'Biting RATZ' file opens the mouth when you left the tail and, printed well (with 3 shells / 50% infill or more), has a good bite!

The 'RATZ' file is a static model with no moving parts. This file can be printed with 2 shells and 10 - 15% infill as it doesn't need the strength required for the 'Biting RATZ' file to make it springy and strong.

At standard size "RATZ' are approx. 85mm tall. They print great in PLA on Makerbot's (as the images show). They should print well in PLA on most well set up accurate machines. However, the design use extreme angles that will be a challenge for ABS. Please also note that some slicing apps and machines may find the fine tolerances / angles / detail challenging. No support required.

'RATZ' are fun... if you print one you'll end up printing lots. The designs have been test printed lots of times to refine them (as the images show)... so get started and infest your house / office / car with some 'RATZ'.

Please refer to the instructions and images for additional information... and if you print some 'RATZ' please post images showing what your 'RATZ' are getting up to or into!

Notes:

Easy print in PLA on a machine will a filament fan... but there are extreme angles and fine tolerances that may be a challenge for some machines and slicing apps as well as ABS. They print really well on MakerBot's as shown in the images provided.

No support is required... leave it turned "OFF" to make sure support doesn't the biting up inside the biting type as there would be no way to clear it out and it would not move as expected..

Post-Printing
Biting RATZ

If you lift the tail and the mouth doesn't open immediately wriggle the tail and mouth gently to free them. Adequate clearance has been allowed for most machines / slicing apps but others may need a little movement to free these parts up.
