This model is from the sketchup warehouse ( http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=73d0ab888f9799e383c569ef28fcc2be&prevstart=0 ). It was edited and scaled by Grade 9 student Michael S.

He removed the dragon riders, edited the object so all surfaces intersect, and scaled the size so it's printable.


Printed on a makerbot with Raft and Exterior Support, 10% infill, 1 shell.

I think your file is missing a wing part...

Uploaded Ender2. I changed the wings a bit. We could see them in Sketchup and on Makerware but I noticed one didn't appear when the file was opened in Solid Edge. I edited the file in Sketchup and created a new STL that should be better. The wings in Ender2 are flat and not quite as fun but should print better.

Note: We have had some issues with follow up prints of the dragon.  Sometimes the wings won't print perfectly and we are not certain why.  We have thickened them and made sure that all faces are intersecting the model in sketchup.  However we have only had 2 successful prints (out of 5) for this model.  Apparently our first was our best. 

If someone else can improve upon the sketchup file we'd love to hear about it. :)  Please post your experiences with this model.  Is it working for you?  Did you tweak the sketchup file?  Did you use more/less shells?
