I use slic3r with a prusa mendel, sli3r crashed my computer very badly when trying to generate support for this complex model. So I split it down the middle in Blender and added a couple polygons for minor support.


Print without support.
I used blue glow-in-the-dark PLA plastic.
I glued the 2 half's together with a hot glue gun.

Thank you! Been unsuccessful printing it for a week...

Very cool! You should try kisslicer for printing with support; that's what I use. How long did that take to print?

I took a look at kisslicer, it didn't seem as simple as the name implies. I used fast settings on my prints, 80mm/sec perimeters and 130mm/s infill. Also infill was set to only 25%. I did Part #2 first and left it, there was an estimate of 6hrs for the print, but it finished in 5ish. Part 1 was a little more finicky, that print took about 4 hours I think. Gluing them together didn't look as great as I had hoped, the photo I posted here kind of hides the joint.
