I originally designed this as a gift for someone who likes owls. The original model was not printed at Shapeways and wouldn't have met the Shapeways design guidelines to be printed. Once I discovered Shapeways and saw that they were the best for this sort thing, that was a problem. It was one of my favorite of my own designs and it was a source of great frustration that it was unprintable. It was around that time, that I also noticed that it looked sort of like an avocado, so I changed the name to reflect that.

Recently, I spent many hours redesigning the Avocaowl from scratch and made numerous small adjustments to the original idea so that it would not only print, but print at a reasonable price. I think I succeeded and the result (in two colors of strong and flexible plastic) arrived in the mail today.

Here is a link to the Avocaowl in my shop, where there are many other things (with shorter stories behind them) that people also might like: http://shpws.me/sDy6
