can we make it into a key chain??

Nice looking model, I processed in both Objet Studio and Insight (SSYS), both tell model has unclosed contours. The image showed the void near the bridge of the nose. Just an FYI

I printed this, and indeed this needs to be scaled up a LOT. I used 600% and it still printed out way too small, so I suspect 1200% might be about right. This model also needs a support behind the neck, or your first few layers will deform like mad, puddle up behind the model until it is finally fully supported, and then it prints fairly well.

please take a picture and upload it on the "I made one!" option on the right

I printed one.
You have to run it trought netfabb and scale it up like 12 times.
I used Black PLA, 0.2 Layer Height, 0.15 infill, with Supports

I gave it away to a friend before I could take a picture, sorry
