Sure there's an Awesome Prints (Hall Of Fame) category but what about all those gems that didn't work out quite like we planned?  Here I submit a dog I attempted to print this evening for my niece.  Do you have an example you dare to share?

haha that's hilarious!  I get lazy after having several good prints in a row and don't watch close enough.  Octoprint camera interface makes it so easy too.

Here's a few that I will grudgingly admit to, nothing very spectacular, however.

I have created an ongoing 3d Print Blob Of Doom gallery on flickr, which has some more spectacular failures, most of which are damaging to the machine.

It's on line here: https://www.flickr.com/groups/14741465@N23/pool/

You're not the only one.  I daresay that almost everyone here has had their fair share of failed prints, whether it's printing errors, drafting errors or designs that just don't serve their purpose.  I would also say that most failed prints don't result in spectacular or even amusing results.

Here's an older gallery of failed prints if you want some more examples.  This is not mine, and it's been around for a while and does not look like it's been updated or added to in some time.

We should keep this thread going.  It lets newbies know that crap happens.

This is my most glorious fail to date, although TBH it was not on a Prusa 😉

Was a PSU Shroud I designed for my PC build, looked to be proceeding very well and adhered well to bed, so I went to my bed, got up the the morning to a trail of filament almost onto the floor.  And a huge blob of solid filament around the head. 

Looks like it warped off the bed and clattered the nozzle.

Only took the photo once it was off the bed and cleaned up the mess so missed a trick, ill be sure to catch the next one in the act!!

Sure my MK3+ will be perfect 😋 

Tank you very much!...
