3D Printing Post Series: “Stickman”

One of the first things most people learn to draw are stickmen. They’re easy, fun, and well, awesome! Especially for people lacking artistic talent (such as myself), stickmen can be super fun to create. So of course, tons of 3D designers have attempted to recreate this simple stickman as an STL file. However, one model in particular caught my eye. This was because it was articulated and print in place! This combination is especially awesome, because it produces super cool results. (Without support material!)  I was ecstatic at finding this model, so I quickly printed it out for myself! It turned out quite nicely, with only a few misprints on the smaller pieces.  All 13 joints move easily, and this stickman really came to life!

 The Print Settings: 

  • Printed with 15% Infill
  • Printed with a hot-end temperature of 230°, and a bed temperature of 85° (To print my White nGen)
