This model is impossible (or perhaps just very very hard) to print!
After four tries I'm giving up. It's a pity, it was an interesting idea!

Sorry to hear you are finding printing this a challenge... but it was always intended to be that way to a fair extent because, when done well, it amazes people and shows off 3D printing possibilities really well.

Anyway, I assume you have read the instructions well and looked through all of the images provided as these will help a lot. And, I have to add, the photos don't lie so his works fine when well printed plus you can see pictures posted of other members successful prints.

To get a great result you must have a precise slicing app that can deal with fine tolerances and a lot of internal surfaces. This is critical as some machines come with rudimentary apps that simply overlook half the design information and people get a solid block.

Equally important as a well set up, accurate machine with an effective filament fan. When printing parts internally, as in this case, the fine clearances need to be printed extremely accurately and then cooled quickly and effectively. Machines with filament cooling fans hanging off the front of the extruder quite distant from the nozzle are unlikely to cool well enough as the cooling will not be direct or strong enough... but you can possibly increase the cooling fan% settings in your slicing app (although some are 100% all the time anyway).

Lastly, build plate adhesion is critical. As the images show the contact surface is minimal so using a raft is necessary. To further improve adhesion you can then increase the raft margin to increase the footprint.

I hope this helps... all the best!

hey could you please tell me how to make it?

In response to both your requests.... just download the .stl files provided then refer to the instructions on the relevant page and follow the process and settings. All the explanation required is in the instructions and images provided...
