    Time to print another and coat it in resin? I’m surprised the eye popped off before the whiskers.

      The reason for that is (I think) because of no wipe tower - when changing the filament, the nozzle is not pressurized and the eye was the first thing it printed with the new filament, meaning the first layer was not as strong as it should be.

      Printing a new one with manual wipe tower (and enabled ironing, which doesn’t help with this, but it looks much better).

        It looks like there is a holr there though? Is this not just a single filament switch at a certain layer height?

          It is. I don’t know if it’s a Prusa MINI issue or a general one, but after changing the filament the pressure in the nozzle isn’t enough to get a good print.

                It lookes like that print just has one filliment switch? If that is the case, my query was why there was a hole where the eye is - should the white layer under it not just be flat?

                You may want to look at what the slicer is doing there and maybe change the infill settings.

                  Ah, now I understand. There’s not a 100% infill, that’s why it’s not solid.

    Still quite the nice model, you wouldn’t happen to have a link to share would you?
