Cura 3.2 has Tree Supports. Please note, Tree Support generates supports differently each time you render it. Tested it out on a friend's printer (he has the same one as me), and it printed out great.

Hello, test on an Anet A8, after three test impossible to print it, test on 210mm high, then 150mm high nothing to do, problem to print the tail and the left paw breaks every time.
I put support everywhere but impossible to print for my part.
Pity

This print started off beautifully in the Cube 3D printer. Then about one hour in, the legs fell over and lots of stringy filament came out. Thankfully a friend was in the room to stop the print.I am trying it again for the HV Eagles! I am printing it with supports this time. Wish me luck!

I'm not sure how to print one. I have downloaded it, but the only option it gives me is to order it online. Also I need one that is 20mm tall. I dont need it to be very accurate, but do you know if you will be able to tell that it is an eagle?

What is a good size to print this? All I need to know is the height so I can print it to scale.

Well, actually even 10cm height will appear fine. But selecting larger dimensions will give more good results. I remember some guys have used full height of an Ultimaker 2 extended printer. Good lucks.

My school is relatively new to this Makerbot replicator 2 that we have. I tried printing this eagle, but it seems since the tail being lower than the body and it is unsupported the printer moves to its location and just drops strings of filament. Is it suppose to be printed in a differnt orientation, or is the tail suppose to print onto something to support it until it reaches the body? Since it lays lines on the same height it does not properly print the tail... Any suggestions?

In my experience the eagle does require support to be enabled. Are you using Makerware? Checking the 'support' box should be all you need to do to generate something for the tail to rest on otherwise yeah it will basically start printing the tail and beak 'midair'

Yes that is what seemed to be happening! I will be reprinting during my break to see how it goes. This has got to be one of the coolest things ever. Design looks awesome, and we are "soaring eagles" so the kids will be very excited to see it print!

Awesome! I would recommend an exacto knife for some of the areas when removing support esp. if its a smaller print - his wings and the juncture between the bulk of the legs and the base are very delicate.

Thank you for your efforts. I would like to add that it is possible to print it without support .
