I had always been very fascinated with animals, so this time I decided to design a Giraffe model, especially for
3d printing purpose.
Presenting you my “Cute Giraffe” model, which is going to add some fun element to your garden decor or maybe your living room desk. The model is made up of two pieces. You will have to use supports only from the build plate for the head piece. The Body is hallowed out to use less time to print & use less amount of print material. You can print the body without supports, but if you want be on the safe side, you can use supports only at the bottom portion of the body inside the model.
Once the model is printed, you can connect the two pieces with the built in joint. You dont need any glue or any extra material.
