A Very Merry UnBirthday to You!

Updated: Oct 7, 2021

Alice in Wonderland is a fantastic story and a classic. When Disney released their animated version of the story in 1951, they brought the characters to life.


With 3D Printing, we can all enjoy our favorite characters every day!




The Mad Hatter is one of a series of files by raddadsteve that he shares for free on thingiverse. What makes his designs unique is that he makes each part its own file. This way, you can print the different parts in whatever colors you want to print them in. This is amazing as it allows you to just print the parts and put them together and not have to worry about painting.

I had a lot of fun with this print. It was a great excuse to buy some new colors to use! I never did get around to printing the tea drop, I'll have to add that later.


Printing

I printed this piece using my Creality Ender 3 printer.


The objects were sliced using Cura and the default Standard Quality .2mm profile.


None of the pieces required supports.


Every printer can be a bit different, but I used 210 for the hot end and 65 for the bed. If you are using a new filament, I suggest you print a Temp Tower to make sure you get the best results.



Filaments Used

Most of the filament I use is from eSun, however, I asked what raddadsteve has used for the skin and he suggested Paramount3D Skin - Universal Beige. This printed like butter! It is a great filament to use. I used it for several more Alice prints as well.




The other filaments I used were all eSun brand and were Black, Light Blue, Blue, Cool White (also my favorite for Lithophanes), Fire Engine Red, silk Gold, and Yellow.


I hope you have as much fun printing this out as I did! It will make a great gift for those Mad Hatters in your life! Happy printing!
