New 3D Print : Reindeer!

My wife asked me to print out a Reindeer for the holidays:  I found the “Holiday Christmas Deer” on Thingiverse, a great looking model.  Plus the shape of the model would take full advantage of the C-Bot’s build volume.  Print came out looking great.  And a new HD timelapse via Octoprint:

Giving the C-Bot's Octopus some glasses
  1. haha yes i noticed the hand, were you holding the model up? Or was that necessary for the part where the printer started on the body?

  2. I knew based on the overhang it would fail there, so I waited with a knife to help ‘hold up’ those bits as it printed 😉
