I've tried building a few ways... with supports and vertically. The original version was also much thinner..so basically printing a pencil type shape with spheres throughout has been a bit of a pain. Maybe now that it is slightly wider, generic raft support will work...feel free to try.

On a future version, I'll see how to make the wand much easier to detach - right now, it can be difficult to do w/o damage.
Very cool.

I'm curious about all of the supports you built - did you try printing using the Skeinforge support and not like the result? I'm tempted to try it to see what happens.

Instructions

Lay the design right side up in the virtual build area
Align so that it is facing from one corner to the opposite
resize to max
center

I used 0.27mm layers with 1 additional shell and 0.15 infill with acceleration enabled and extruder temp at 240 degrees w/ ABS

I'll probably release a v2 version later on....
Very cool.
