This is a remix of MyDogJustice's Stanford Dragon model with the bottom of the model cleaned up. I used MeshMixer to flatten the belly and paws and heal all geometry anomalies.
You will need to print this with supports and a raft!
Please note that the original from Stanford doesn't contain a license, but does encourage you to use the printed model in good taste. Thanks!
Here are my settings for red HatchBox ABS. A constant across all colors is that the feet are printed properly. If the dragon's feet are warped or messy, stop your print and adjust the cooling and temperature settings for the first 20 layers.
If you're using Simplify3D, the auto-generated supports are adequate. For smaller prints, you may want to remove some of the supports in the back of the throat, as they're especially difficult to remove.
If you're manually placing supports, the important areas are:
- under the chin
- inside the mouth
- the crest and spikes on the head
- underneath all raised feet
Cool the first 30 layers at 70%, then back off to 0% cooling (or higher value as needed):
Extrusion was 215 C. If you're using a heated build platform, start with a low temperature and raise to a high temperature:
