I flattened the base and cleaned up some artifacts on the tail that I'm guessing were the result of scanning.
This is the most work I've ever done on a model (I used Netfabb and Blender to clean it), so I learned a lot, and he came out very cute. My print came before I caught an error in the model, which caused the bandana looking line. It slices correctly now.

In the old system (Skeinforge) there was a setting somewhere that changed the minimum number of solid layers. I'm sure Makerware probably has something similar.
The idea is that there isn't enough plastic for all the little holes to fill up in just one layer. If you add an extra solid layer or two then there will be enough that you don't see any gaps.
When I print this everything looks great until the top of the head and then it never closes all the way and leaves a hole on the top of his head. I tried lowering the filament width to get more to extrude and I tried adding more infill but neither helped much. Any ideas on how I can solve this?
I've made quiet a few squirrels now on my Ultimaker. It's a nice and easy to print shape which can even be done on 'Hollow' mode in Netfabb. I even managed to make a 16mm tall one on Netfabb standard quality. To get a good quality print I needed to bring print speed down to make the layers cool down somewhat longer. It took 33 minutes for this little one :-)
