It's Movember 2016 and Global Print Initiative is hosting a contest for the best beard. I decided to include printed beards in the contest. Please take a second and vote for your favorite. Each vote is $1 and it goes to Global Print Initiative a 501(c)3 charity that brings 3D printers to hard to reach places and teaches them the skills to run a print shop to allow them to support local good will initiatives. At the end of the competition, the winner gets to choose what charity or school will get a 3D Printer.
The model as is will print perfectly with a .3 first layer and .2 for the rest of the layers. if you want it to fit do some measurements. You can either super glue the left and right side or if you have a big enough bed print the full beard.
