We created a Blue Whale Mama & baby!
Mama's mouth opens so the baby can hide inside! A creative and interactive toy for children. We added some real-life details like the blow-hole which could lead to interesting conversations about sea mammals!
Don't hesitate play around with colours or print more than one baby whale! Also, the Blue Whale Mama could be used as a little box. Although the baby whale is big enough we recommend to print this for children over 5 years old.
We would love to see your prints! :)

Materials and methods
-We used an Ultimaker 2+ 3D printer and the models in the photos are printed with 0.6mm nozzle (you can also use a 0.4mm). We used PLA Real Filament & Ultimaker filament in Silver & Pearl White.
-Support material and brim only used on the 'Mama Whale Body' file.
-The resolution is 0.15mm - 0.25mm.
-Infill isn't needed.
- To remove the brim use a sharp knife and file or sand back the brim to the edge of the 'Mama Whale Body' model.
-The 'Mama Whale Body' has been designed with a click hinge that the 'Mama Whale Mouth' should snap fit into straight from the build plate, if not you can file back the hinge on the mouth a bit to create an easier fit.
