About

Welcome to the world of Chibimals. A growing library of kid friendly, whimsical models for your 3D printer. Designed FFF-friendly; these models require no supports and could be printed with low or no infill to save on material. Perfect as a test print or just for fun. With soft edges and a huge, useful interior, they are suitable for all ages. 

Help build the whole set and print your own world of Chibimals!

You Help Build It!

How many Chibimal 3D models will be included in this kickstarter? It depends on how much it raises. For ever $300 raised, a new Chibimal is added to the Kickstarter Collection.

For your support you will not only receive all the chibimal models developed in this campaign, but you will have a vote in what the next chibimal will be as the campaign progresses. This is a backer driven kickstarter. Your choices guide the campaign.

Accessorize your Chibimals

 In addition to the animals, your models will include a library of accessories that you can add to any Chibimal and make them your own. Wings and Halos, Hats and Magical Horns, Umbrellas and Grass Skirts, allow you to give personality to your own Chibimals. Simply import your choice of animal and accessories into your favorite 3d modeling program, or even directly into your slicer, arrange them how you want, and 3D print your customized Chibimal.

(Accessorized Chibimals may require supports to print properly)

Meet the Chibimals

Chibimals started with only 6 models chosen to demonstrate the style and range of creatures possible, and has already grown to more than 16. How many will there be in the end? Only you will be able to decide that. So far the world of Chibimals includes:

 The Artist 

This project is brought to you by me, Joe Larson, the 3D Printing Professor.  An award winning 3D designer, blogger, YouTuber, and author. This project combines my passion for 3D design, drive for education, and excitement for interacting with my audience.

Risks and challenges

3d models will be created during the campaign, so delivery will be made just as soon as Kickstarter clears the funds. A wildly successful campaign may have some delay if there are models left to work on at the end, but that will be cleared up quickly.
