3D Printing a Racoon Cookie Cutter

I had to do a remix of a Thingiverse model. A little touch up but mostly altering the orientation of the model in the original source .stl file.

The model that user orjginal posted was oriented so it would print vertically to the print bed.

It doesn't make sense to me why the original model was this way since the cookie cutter design can naturally be laid down flat. Printing the racoon cookie cutter flat would also promote better adhesion to the bed's surface as the extruded PLA is layered down.

Normally I would put my models under a Creative Commons CC BY-SA license. Orjginali has the original design under a more restrictive BY-NC 4.0 license. Since the touch ups I made to the design beyond reorientation are de minimis I've mirrored my remix under that license.
