now, when you say no supports, are you referring to FDM printers, or something else? Cause it seems like there's a couple spots that might be an issue without supports.

also, seems like cura can't make the base totally flat? the front is touching the bed, but the back isn't, causing layer 2 to fail.

i use simplify3d and i rotate it -90 degrees to set base flat on table.
i dont understand why you cant do that.

Yeah, I did that too, but it made like a half donut shape first, then later two was the round base and half of it was floating off the bed.

that is very strange. i wonder if there is anything i can do to fix that for you. how bout you see if you can get it straight using meshmixer.

discovered the "lay flat" button in cura, solved. But yeah, if you just rotate it -90 it's still canted slightly, and not flat. Fortunately, if you're not blind like me, you'll see the lay flat button in the rotate settings.

slimplify3d has lay flat command too.= place surface on bed. im glad u found it and its now flat for you.

Printed a 4 hour test at .15 layer height and scaled 75%, it printed beautifully, now to do one at just .1
