What a doll!
Posed to sit on a rock and sing
some sailors to their doom.
A Siren is a monster from Greek mythology.
they are often depicted as sea creatures
that lured sailors to their deaths
with their songs.
My model is a fantasy rendering.
She has a aquatic appearance,
some of the features of a human female
but clearly not a beauty!
Modeled in sculptris.
Truespace 5 used to cut the flat bottom.
I made the test print without infill and 2 shells.
I used no support, the arms are a challenge for some printers,
I use a replicator so the platform only moves down. For printers
that move the build platform, i think the arms might cause issues.
so in breif no support was needed on my machine, some might need support.
I will do another print (in a day or so) using infill.
The test print has a few pinholes that might go away with infill.
As an alternative finish using a goop of ABS/acetone to fill in defects like the pinholes. (the attached pics are without any finishing).
I have had great success with using the "goop" to fix
separation cracks and top pinholes.
I suggest a decent size print to get the full effect of the scales
and facial details that would get lost on a smaller print.
my stl has the size I printed it at. roughly 100mm (4 inches)
I did another print using 10% infill. and larger.
It prints much nicer in the larger size.
