Why is it so small? At 100% it's only 8mm tall! I made mine at 1200% and might even go bigger for the next one.
Also the mesh is not manifold, it would be great to repair it and post the corrected STL.
"... a man of infinite jest."Â My buddy Ted sprouted that line before the last layer was cooled on that skull.Â I can't wait to print a bigger one.
Â It's 90% hollow, depending on how you print it.Â You could definitely drill into it and use the inside of the cranium for stuff.Â You could also take the model and break it up in some sort of CAD software and make a tidy little inner cavity for your widgets.Â I don't know how to perform that operation yet but I'm looking forward to learning.Â In fact, I've been doing most of my work in Autodesk 123D until now, and I'm probably moving away because you can't cut up imported meshes with it.

I sliced it with Miracle Grue using defaults except for raft, supports, 0.20 layer height, extruder temp at 260C. It took me 9.5 hours to print and about 2 hours to remove the support material. I gave it to my friend Ann for her birthday.
I kinda liked it with the supports; it reminded me of something by H.R. Giger.
