Cosmonaut figure as Venus on a Replicator, after Botticelli. Had to be done.
Archetype meets Renaissance meets 1920's futurism meets bleeding-edge pop culture. She's getting closer and closer to stepping out into the real world.

This prints pretty well on a Replicator with these settings:
- Use the "with elbow strut" .stl variant
- 75% build space ("fill build space" then scale 75%)
- Hollow (0% infill)
- No support material
- Layer Height = .2
- Number of shells = 1 (2 total)
- Nozzle temp = 225
- Platform temp = 115
The front horizontal bar of the Replicator sags a bit, but it could be sanded. The Replicator's feet curl up, but I didn't use a raft, which might help. The figure's right elbow is the only problematic overhang. Use the strut variant, then clip it off the finished print; there's no need for any other external supports. (Both versions, with and without the elbow strut, are in the .zip file)
