I printed these salt and pepper shakers using a NVBot 3-D Printer. I initially printed the shakers from the paws up, and was greeted with an error message saying my print could not be completed because the layers wouldn't stick to the base. After a discussion with Professor Larson, I realized that I needed to have more surface area on the base of the print. 

I cut the objects in half in Fusion 360 and laid them on their sides so that the print would be possible. I then ripped off the supports and super glued the two sides together for each shaker.
