    Hello Shapies,

    Yet another espresso cup, but this time completely different from before,

    Love the idea, the head looks a little extended from the body though.

    Good eye, I think it does also now that you pointed it out, I'll definitely change that.

    I made some revisions, better connection to platform, fixed the head and some other surface details, what do you guys think?

    Can this be printed in cermics, although the ankles look kind of skiny for the size, they are a little less than 3mm in one direction?

    I have a lot of hands-on experience with the zcorb 350, starch material, and once the model made it past waxing, it was strong.

    Looking good, I think the 3mm rule for ceramic is pretty firm, especially for the right foot that is directly supporting the model. The left could be seen as a detail, so that one may slide.

    Thanks again, I'll try to get this printed, hopefully I'll be as lucky as I was with the first espresso cup
