With the lack of snow this winter snowmen needed a makers touch to continue on. Half moss, half snow, Makey the mossman is the next step forward for snowman kind. With the ability to replace Rudolph with his twist-able hat that shines bright or fight crime using his MAKE signal to gather makers from far and wide. The ultimate product of evolution this little guy is a perfect excuse togo for a stroll with the kids to collect some moss and make a piece of living art for your home. Hopefully more Makey the mossmen will be found in the wild after today's discovery!
Enjoy. to make it: 
-each picture has a little bit of information on how to get it together so ill just go over print settings here 
Print settings Tophat -10% infill, 3 layer top, use black PLA with supports 
Body -vase mode, no top layers *Watch out for cooling issues like I had near the top of the spheres could have easily fixed it but ran out of white filament :( 
Head -10% infill, 3 layer top, use white PLA with supports 
I was able to get my .8 nozzle working so I could print at .6 layer height which gave a cool layered look and feel to the print like snow!

I am really new to printing so its possible you might be able to get better settings and results but this is a good starting point. I did my best to make the model as simple for the user and the printer. Feedback is always welcome if you think theres something that can be done better.
