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 Insight log Read 105232 facets in 0:01 from "C:/Users/chrisg/Downloads/iron_man_head.stl" Memory size 29701KB STL comment: Exported from Blender-2.64 (sub 0) 16 free surface edges left in model (object is not closed). 105232 facets stored 52624 unique vertices stored 157856 unique edges stored Bounding box of this STL X, Y, Z:

  min = (-1.4130, -1.8230, -1.0518)
  max = (1.4130, 2.6628, 2.9928)

1 curve is not closed 0 intersecting curves were merged 6 curves too small to build were removed

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

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.

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
