The railing is too thin to be considered printable by most slicers. Even on high resolution mode, the railing is not there in Simplfy3D. I played around with this model and discovered that by scaling the Z axis to 150 mm, (124.02%), the railing is there. I have printed other things 150 mm tall, but that is close to the limit for my printer. Hopefully this discovery helps someone else as well.

EDIT, the railing only appears when I set the nozzle diameter to .20 mm width and layer height to .10 mm. This also makes for a 10+ hour print job. Scale to 120% with these nozzle settings and it still has the railing.

tried twice to print the tower. Only 1/3 of it finished. Using a makerbot z18 first platform looks great but quits there and shows 100%finished. Any ideas out there?

Same thing keeps happening to me.

i see it printed most of it. good turn out on what did print correctly, i have the same small issues with my printer doing good on miniature detail pieces. i see no railing and your covering the top as it looks to be missing in your hands? so you cut it off is that right? maybe you can print them separately and glue them on. just a thought . thanks for sharing :)

To me, impossible on the Da Vinci 1.0 Pro. Not sure why FDM doesn't like the Eiffel Tower. I tried raft, supports, even slowing down the speed. Never worked.

Your picture and model do not match. Your picture doesn't have the railing around the middle. Did you modify it?

I'm trying to figure out the same thing. The picture seems great but I can't get the model to print correctly on a Replicator Mini.

What's your recommendation for printing? Did you use support?

Looks like SLS or SLA. Supports would certainly be needed on a FDM printer.
