Make sure to rotate 180 deg about x or y axis. The program it was crated in has the Z axis flipped. It should print just fine with the given base. You can also try printing with a raft (i do that for the larger print just to make sure it does not come loose)

I tried to make this, scaled to ~123mm high, but it eventually broke from the platform. It would be great if you could add a thin disk to the base to increase adhesion to the the platform. The disk could be broken off later.

Instructions

Must be rotated 180 deg to print on the flat base. Prints well standard size and at 195% with 0.15mm layers, 2 shells, and 15% infill.

Note: In MakerWare the standard size takes 30+ min to slice. The larger 195% version takes well over an hour (i typically let it generate the path overnight). The print times are ~3.5 hours for the small one and 11.5 hours when printed at 195%. Both prints were done using a Replicator2.
