## Step 1: Find All Piece Sizes

For the first step you will want to find all the measurements you are going to use for your project. I made my project in every different piece so I would only have to put them together.

Here is the link to my tinkerCAD design SO you can use the measurements I used: https://www.tinkercad.com/things/0ns7DsndmWR-tremendous-lahdi/editv2

## Step 2: Putting All the Pieces Together

In this step after you have made your pieces you have to put it together. First you want to put the body together on the base. After you have the body made you are going to add your arms on the sides. Finally you will put the head together with putting the eyes on then the hair and jacket hood.

## Step 3: Grouping Together and Printing

This is the easiest step all you have to do is group all the parts together and print. To group together you are going to hold shift and click on all the different parts then click the group button at the top of the page to the right. After you group them all together you are going to save it as a .stl or .obj depending on what 3-d printing program you will be using. Now be careful because this is a 16 hour print and uses a lot of filmint so if you are worried about running out I would shrink him down in size.

## Step 4: Painting and Size

With your Kenny done being printed you can now sand him down and paint. For this step I went down to my local art shop and got so acrylic paint. You can paint him what ever colors you would like but I used the standard colors orange, brown, black, and a tan color. Like I said in step 2 this was a fairly large print the biggest one done on the printed I used his head has a circumference of around 32cm. His body has a circumference of around 23a half centimeters. His height is around 10cm. Overall this was a fun project and a cool print.

Just ordered a 3d printer, this is awesome! Add some led's and make it a nice lamp :)

That's really cute :) Do you have a photo of the printed project?

Thank you Swansong for pointing that out I added a Final step that has him printed and colored. I also added his measurements including his height circumference of head and his body. I'm glad you liked it :)

I love Kenny :) I accidentally got South Park stuff banned from my junior high because I went to school with an "I Killed Kenny" shirt and the administration didn't think it was funny. ^.^;
