A magician friend wanted to see if I could copy a little bunny that he found and was using for a magic trick. The goal was to make the bunny look like sugar compressed into the shape of the bunny.

I was originally going to scan the one sent to me and turn that into a 3D file so I could print it , but I found a STL file that I think was used to make it. I just needed to modify the ears and get the texture dialed in.

Original on the left and the file I think was used to make the original on the right.

I used blender to modify the STL putting the ears together, and added the texture using the fuzzy skin setting in Cura.

Got a texture setting picked out, so I tried printing with a clear PETG.

My friend showed a few of his magician buddies who really liked the samples I sent and they wanted a couple hundred between them.
