just a heads up to anyone who hasn't printed this yet. as is the case with most larger prints, it is better to print this in as few pieces as possible. if you can fit it in your build area, its worth the extra print time. my first try, i printed this out in 6 pieces and the result required a LOT of post-processing to get it looking good. this has nothing to do with the model, which is amazing work, but more to do with slight variations between prints. so dont be me, print this in larger pieces!
