The STL (Standard Tessellation Language or STereoLithography) file format is the most commonly used format for 3D printing.
When used with a 3D slicer, it allows a computer to communicate with the 3D printer hardware, printing a model.
Since its humble beginnings, many CAD software packages have adopted and supported the STL file format.
It is a 3D printing process and corresponding file type created by Chuck Hull at 3D Systems in the 1980s. It is for rapid prototyping, 3D printing, and computer-aided manufacturing.

Articulated Octopus 3D Print Information
This octopus can be printed without additional support.
It’s designed so it can be printed at once, and with no assembly or supports required.
You can play around with colors and replaceable tentacles!
To print the small replaceable tentacle, be sure to enable “print thin walls” in the slicer.
No need for additional support to print this articulated octopus!
Settings are the same as the Octopus 2.0 tentacle replacement video
Once you’ve finished downloading your Articulated Octopus, follow these steps:
- Use appropriate software to unzip the archive (if the file is in .zip or .rar format).
- Import the STL or OBJ file (or any other 3D printable format) into your preferred 3D slicer program.
- Adjust all the necessary settings in your slicer to prepare the 3D printing process and generate the final G-Code.
- Transfer the G-Code to your 3D printer using methods such as an SD card, USB connection, WiFi, or any other suitable means.
