UPDATE #2: I made about 3 times bigger version. It has a lot of hair and they are also very long.
Watch Joel Telling’s (3D Printing Nerd) video about it: youtu.be/OTXPU2P-ElE
UPDATE #1: I made 50% smaller version. It should only take about 1-2 hours to print. But you must be much more careful when cutting the hair. This model has much less hair, so if you break or pull out too much hair, there will be visible bald spots.
The hair is connected to sacrificial wall, which is removed afterwards.
(See picture: post_processing.jpg) You can also try hot water to form the hair. Anyway, be careful not to burn yourself.
There was a request to add a brim to sacrificial wall. So I made it: “Hairy_Lion_with_brim.STL”
This was printed with ABS, but it should also work with other materials. If you are having problems, adjust bridging settings in your slicer.
