Crocodile

3D model description

Crocodile, from the comic strip by Stephan Pastis.

Crocodile is the main antagonist and villain of the strip. As an inept and inarticulate neighbor of Zebra they he is usually involved in various attempts to kill and eat Zebra, all of which fail.

No supports are required. If you have the right filament colors, no painting is needed.

The completed model is 135mm tall after assembly. This model is in proportion to the Pig and Crocodile models from the comic that I've also posted.

Enjoy!

Printing and assembly tips
1-No supports are required.
..
2-I used a brim on some pieces, use your discretion based on your own preference:
-arm_left and arm_right are tall curved piece with a very small base.
..
3- For the best looking model be sure to clean your brims thoroughly. All the pieces are sized to fit nicely, providing the brims/squish are cleaned up. This includes the holes for the body_bumps.
..
Assembly tips:
-The diagram below will help in assembling the model and is quite straightforward.
-The model is meant to be glued together.
-Again, take care to ensure that the first layer 'squish' and any added brim is completely cleaned off.
-The eye_whites pieces should be rotated to fit properly. The larger part of the white goes on the top.
-The eye_blacks pieces are interchangeable, there are no left/right differences.
-The model stands nicely on it's own, however a base is included for extra stability if needed.
