The original had an uneven base, so I had problems starting the print. I made the bottom flat and even in Blender. As a result the file size was reduced from 16.2MB to 3.1MB (I honestly don't know why!).



Printed perfectly at 15% infill, 0.2mm layer with 0.1mm skin. No supports needed.

Hi, how i can build a different layer height in skin?

3DTOPO - in reply to Boner

That is controlled by whatever software you use to slice the .stl file...

please. can you tell me what solfware you use and what is the option name for skin, i use slic3r and i only see the layer height option, but not skin option. regards

Very nice, I'm going to try to print one to give to my brother. I'll post a picture!

Excellent. I used an older copy of Sketchup and the plug in probably did not optimize things making the file big. So when you edited it with Blender, it probably fixed that as well as the base. Thanks. Mr. Buddha (or Budhai) is very popular.

Thank you for sharing the original! All credit should go to you and the artist.

I didn't have any real problems printing the original, however, I did notice the bottom wasn't flat. Thanks for fixing that!

Very cool. Trying a print as well.

Thanks Laird, I really can't take any credit though! I love your Automation Dragon. I plan on printing it soon!
