After seeing Aphrodite 20 by virtumake I did the same thing to this bust.
Imported into 3dsMax. Slice Modifier. Export as stl. Voila.
UPDATE: There are 2 lots of files. 1 version ( bustTOP & bustBOT) is with a base. The other (bustTOP & BOT _NObase) is, surprisingly, the one with no base.
BE WARNED: at 0.10 thickness, 2 shells and 10% fill and using the accelerated x3g format, the bustTOP_Nobase build took 30 hours and 49 minutes while the bustBOT_Nobase took 30 hours and 18 minutes to build.
Make sure you have got enough filament on your spool.
If you are using a replicator 2, if you haven't done it already, replace the standard filament plunger extruder system with one of the many excellant spring loaded extruders on thingiverse.
Two lots of stl files, top and bottom. Note the NObase TOP/BOT is NOT interchangeble with the base TOP/BOT version.
10% fill, 2 shells. Print, glue. I use polystyrene cement for models. Works a treat for me. The paint is a spray 'White Knight' Metal Tones Super Gold.
Scaled for Replicator 2. Maximum size is about 10% bigger.
