This Instructable describes how to clone a willing sheep. First of all you need a volunteer sheep with good intentions, who will not mind to be cloned and reproduced multiple times. In the case of the sheep that i chose to clone, he had a secret plan for world domination.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

- 1 Sheep volunteer
- 3D scanner
- 3D printer
- Mold casting material
- Plaster, gypsom or other casting materials
- Casting equipment: mold release spray, cups, sticks, newspaper....
- Good intentions
Very good job. <br>It's amazing the work they can do, with some important tools at hand. <br>Combining the knowledge of 3D software, ease of ordering models made starting at 3D printing, I believe that this fosters creative and technological development. <br> <br>Congratulations on your work. <br> <br>Daniel Domingos
Its Dolly!
woah!<br><br>I would love to see it added to the 3D print group I have just started<br><br>http://www.instructables.com/group/3Dprint/<br><br>Thanks
with those inverted bumps you can let the clone cure inside lego city :P
So cute! Sheep are my favorite animals. :3
I love the use of legos for molding, very clever!
Only 1 question... What does this have to do with april fools day???
Plusea<br><br> Hello, Nice 'ible! Can you tell me what 3d scanning setup are you using? looks different from David and Maker Scanner that I have seen in other 'ibles.<br><br>How easy is it to clean up and merge/stitch it's scans? <br><br>BoorT
the scanner was a <a href="http://www.konicaminolta.com/sensingusa/products/3D-Scanning">konica minolta</a>. i think it's actually a pretty expensive setup that we have here at the lab, so it is nothing as available as milkscanning. i forgot the name of the software, but i might have documented more of it here: &gt;&gt; http://fab.cba.mit.edu/classes/MIT/863.09/people/hannah/week8.html
Very cool projects. Thanks for the pointers
Future War of clone
ahh I love the way you wrote the instructions it was very entertaining i might not ever make a sheep clone but it was a blast to read about it
With the loop formed by the legs it might be a better idea to make a 3 part mould, this will allow the legs to be easily removed. As you can see in pic 4 in this step the legs are trapped inside a half of the mould.<br>It's also a good idea to add some keys at this stage to help align the mould parts.<br><br>oh, and pet hate: <br>The plural of lego is lego, just like the plural of sheep is sheep!<br>&quot;Legos&quot; is not a word!
legos is a word
No, it's a misconstruction, commonly used in America, but wrong.<br>If you check their company profile they state:<br>&quot;LEGO must never be used as a generic term or in the plural or as a<br>possessive pronoun, e.g. &ldquo;LEGO&rsquo;s&rdquo;.&quot;<br>So... no it's not.
Oh snap, that's awesome! I would've just used Mold Builder and simply painted over it, but I love 3D Printers and you can preserve the plush!
Oo nice. I'd love something like this for personal use but I probably could not afford one of those 3D printers.
This is pretty neat.
I don't understand why this is a April's fools intructable?
Cool. Which 3D printer was used? I haven't seen the process done with supporting material and then etched away.
It was printed on the Stratasys Dimension
