3D Printing Post Series: Rock Slime!

Does this adorable little blob look familiar? If so, you must be familiar with Slime Ranchers, a popular game on Steam. And of course, when Chaos Core Tech decided to model this charming little guy, of course I had to print one. He turned out pretty nicely, but some layering and cracking was visible. The layering was to be expected, as I printed this Slime at a .3mm layer height (to reduce print times). The cracking was probably because of too high a fan speed, which can cause layers to not stick to each other; subsequently cracking. However, the main feature of this slime is his size. Scaled to maximum volume, this slime is gigantically awesome. This adorable little guy was printed in Blue HIPS on my Lulzbot Mini
