Let's Play a Game...

... I'll show you some pictures, and you try to figure out what it is. Ready? GO!

In the meantime, let me tell you about support material on the Ultimaker.

IT IS AMAZING! While it is no Dimension or Objet, it still has settings for breakaway support material. That is, vertical planes of the smallest thickness the 3D printer can muster.

It builds up these support layers along with the main model up until the overhanging layer is met. Then it simply prints on top of the slats. Some x-acto kniving is required but the result is well worth it.

Anyway, the mystery model is...

That girl! (Hana) She is from some anime I havent heard of, yet she was uploaded onto Thingiverse. I search for anime occasionally in hopes that Miku might pop up.

All I had to do post operation was snap off the supporting material. Comes off very easily because of the minimal contact points.

And check this out, her hair is NOT attached to her back. That is to mean they are separate pieces. Her neck is the only attachment point between the head and shoulders. Support material woot!
