A difficult print. It only managed to print 10% of the time for me, and your mileage may vary. I'll certainly adhere more rigidly to good FDM design next time! Let me know if there is interest in this particular character, and I'll make a more printable pose for her.
Original model by Kio and is also subject to the terms of his license.
I mostly used this pose as an excuse to experiment with various support pillaring techniques.
Flat, 1-2 filament wide columns seem to give fairly good payoff for how easy they are to remove from convex surfaces that they support. Non-convex intersections with the model required tooling or sanding. Because these pillars are long and narrow, they can easily pull themselves off the platform when the plastic cools, so it's good to boolean little cones to them, especially on the edges of a pillar.
