10. Pumpkin Axolotl

Halloween planning can start early with fun 3D printed decorations like this cute axolotl pumpkin model. While not frightening, this happy axolotl jack-o-lantern with its friendly face will make a cheerful addition to Halloween displays.

According to the designer, using 50% infill when printing the pumpkin provides good results. The feathery axolotl gills can then be securely attached using glue after printing.

15. Kit Card Axolotl

17. Desk Organizer Axolotl

In keeping with the Minecraft theme. It helps neatly store small items that often get lost on messy workspaces. The multi-part print allows customizing your axolotl colors.

Since it's printed in separate pieces, the designer suggests using a utility knife to remove any excess plastic, and gluing the parts together for stability.

21.LUCKY AXOLOTL

We’re sure many of you are familiar with maneki-neko, the popular lucky cat, an iconic Japanese figurine that’s said to bring good luck. But what about a lucky axolotl? We hope that printing this little creature will give you good luck for many prints to come.

The creator notes that it’s an easy print but recommends using supports for the gills.

22.Axolotl Skull

This spooky axolotl could be another cool addition to your Halloween collection. It prints in a few different parts, so you can create some fun color combinations, such as black and glow-in-the-dark.

The creator included a separate file for a NeoPixel holder, so you can add lights to the print. Just like many other models on this list, be sure to use supports for the gills.

23.CORK PALS: AXOLOTL ROSE

If you have an abundance of corks lying around, this cork pal could be a great way to turn your sea of wine corks into an axolotl army! The model prints in two separate parts and can fit onto practically any cork.

The creator has designed this model to be printed in PLA, but we’re sure other materials would work as well. They recommend using a 0.2-mm layer height, 20% infill, and 3 shells.

24.Fierce Axolotl

Axolotls are not known for being fierce. Actually, it’s quite the opposite! Although this model might not be the most fearsome at first glance, it’s definitely the most intimidating print on this list.

It prints in four different pieces that glue together. You can also give it a fresh paint job for a fun look.

25.ARTICULATED AXOLOTL

This cute little Axolotl is articulated with 18 joints. The feet hinge up and down slightly, the forearms swivel side to side, and the rest of the body parts can move up, down, left, or right.

The file named "SMALL" is the smallest suggested size to print the model, to maintain the arms' movability. You can print it bigger for a greater range of movement, and at a higher quality to see all the details in the model better.

Tips for 3D Printing Axolotls

  • Use a high-resolution 3D printer for best results. The finer the print resolution, the more detail you'll be able to achieve on the axolotl model.
  • Choose a 3D model that has smooth surfaces and refined details. Look for models that accurately represent the anatomy and features of a real axolotl.
  • Print with supports enabled to avoid any overhangs or warping, especially on the slender legs and gills.
  • Use a raft or brim to provide a stable base for the model and prevent warping on the first layer.
  • Print slowly for complex models. A slower print speed will allow details to fully form.
  • Sand and smooth the model after printing if necessary to refine the surface and remove any printing lines.
