Trash Beast Miniature Print Data
The Trash Beast is above and beyond the most difficult miniature to print. I do not know what it was about one of its tentacles but I would always fail. I believe I attempted the piece above its eye approximately 4 to 5 times before I had good enough adhesion, didn’t run out of filament or some other strange reason I couldn’t track down. Finally a big enough brim, better adhesion, as well as a new nozzle finally game me the success I need.
For the trash beast itself also commonly known as an Otyugh in Dungeon and Dragons is another creature that has existed in all 5 editions of dungeons and dragons and yet I have never encountered the. This is a shame of course because these intelligent creatures can even speak in common. Perhaps one day my band of adventurers will encounter this beast.
As for the print quality the print itself looks good, some retraction improvement along the tentacles and very obvious “mold lines” on the model where the pieces reattached. The one benefit of this model is how easily it was to attach the pieces to glue this guy together. Perhaps I shall use this model to try to improve my sculpting skills?
