3D Printing Post Series: Squirtle the Turtle!

Once again, Pokemon have overtaken the world.  However, this time it’s in the form of an app on your phone. That’s right, I’m talking about Pokemon Go. And if you haven’t heard about gaming phenomenon Pokemon Go yet, you may be living under a stump. Because of this HUGE gaming phenomenon, I decided to print a Pokemon! Squirtle seemed fitting, so I loaded up my Blue HIPS and hit print. Pictured above/below is the result! Overall, Squirtle looks pretty good, despite some visible layering near the top of his head.

 Print Settings: 

  • Printed with 15% Infill
  • Printed with a hot-end temperature of 235°, and a bed temperature of 110° (To print my Blue HIPS)

  • Pickles = Green
  • Printed with Medium Fan Speeds
