It's time for another 3D design, and this week, we're going back a decade and making Gir from Invader Zim. I included 2 files, one is just the Gir model, and the other is one with tree supports added in MeshMixer.
I created this model in Fusion 360. I wanted him to print in a single piece, and I tried to position him so he'd need minimal supports. I added supports in MeshMixer because I wanted to try out the tree supports they have. It worked alright, there was some artifacting I would've preferred to avoid. I printed it on my Robo 3D R1 with Hatchbox White PLA.
Post Processing: Step 1: Sand/File any rough spots. Step 2: Apply plastic primer. Give it a few coats, letting it dry completely in between. Step 3: Paint the gray/silver areas. We used spray paint, Krylon Hammered Metal. Apply a few coats letting it dry in between. Step 4: Paint the details. These are the teal colored eyes and joints as well as the black on his mouth. We used water based acrylic paint with a paint brush.
