most of the slicers assume a mm scale so it's a good idea to scale the object to mm scale when you export it. also, even though this printed, it does have lots of internal geometry that could be cleaned up by running it through NetFabb (http://www.netfabb.com/basic.p...

Man super cool. That
’s the first thing i made that someone actually have printed, it’s great to see that it actually worked :D

I did set the scale in 3DS max to 16cm, so i guess the scaling to STL isn’t 1:1, good to know.

Hopefully i will get a chance to print my own on my university's 3D printer next week, ca
nt wait.
