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

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.

Instructions

This was my first model for 3D printing, that I made in order to understand what are the limitation of 3D printing, and compare different printers.

It's made purely for checking out the quality of your prints and therefore for personal home use, NO Commercial, please. If you intend to display this print result on photos/video/websites, Contact me about it. Thanks!

UPDATES:
due to a number of problems related to the past models, this one should solve every issue. Also should be able to print well even with lower settings. Let me know if further modification are needed!
