Were you able to print a dual extruder version? I made a new version if you would like to try it.
I had a new idea that it would be really interesting to print lion's mane with flexible filament and the body with normal filament. I think that it would look really good and it would also be interesting to touch.
My concern was, that the wall made of flexible material wouldn't be able to stand and support the mane. So, I split the model in 3 parts: body, mane and wall.
