Mewnir

Once upon a time, there was (and still is) an awesome comic book called The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. In this comic, a character traveled to Asgard and met Loki. When Loki offered to do impressions, this character requested Cat Thor. Loki complied. Later in the issue, he sallied forth into battle as Cat Thor, wielding Mewnir, a kitten version of Mjolnir.

One day, in a fit of procrastination, I decided that making a 3D model of Mewnir that I could 3D print was more important than doing billable work with an upcoming deadline. And so here we are.

There are two versions of Mewnir. One has a solid head. Great for play, but expensive to 3D print. 3D printing is often priced by the material used. A solid head uses a lot of material. So I made a second version with the head hollowed out from the back. This brings the price down, at the aesthetic cost of a hollowed out backside.

If you want your own wee Mewnir, you can order one from Shapeways for a reasonable cost. If you do have your own printer, I've made the STL files available, along with the OpenSCAD files from which I generated the STLs. Be aware that I'm a crappy 3D modeller. Also be aware that this model uses some icons from The Noun Project. They've been extruded into the ears, mouth, and tongue. That means that the models carry over a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported license from those icons. Details are in the README files included within each ZIP file.

Mewnir - Solid Head

Mewnir - Hollow Head

Note: The 2/3 size model was resized within Shapeways. There are no STL/OpenSCAD files for it. The half size model has a slightly thicker loop at the bottom, to meet material specifications, hence the separate model files.
