O.K. I'm stuck. How did you print it without supports for the horizontals? Or did you spend an hour cleaning it up?

If you rotate the model so a complete side is down you shouldn't need supports. I don't believe anyone who has printed it has needed to use them.

Yep. It originally came in "upside down" so I tried to print it that way. But I also got support added under all of the horizontals. I'm printing again and except for a few strands running diagonally, it's printing much better. It makes me wonder what the reasonable / theoretical limits are for perfectly horizontal runs for any given diameter of ABS, etc.

I printed it in ABS, I've yet to use PLA.

Great. Thanks. Trying a PLA print right now, if result is eh, I'll try ABS. Thanks again!

PS. What do you use as your print surface for ABS? (Looking for an easier way than what I do)

I use blue painters tape.

I run the makerware default, 110F.

Printed it in PLA on my RoBo 3D Printer, it came out great!
