This is a head bust of the alien gray, as they were first described in the 60's. A separate base is included. Initially, to be printed together with a dual extruder but the gcode wouldn't build. Might have been some setup problems.


This was my fourth print try and the most complete without some banding. I do these circular type things mirrored upside down on the plate, with a raft and external supports picked. I came across a setting to make the first layer at 225 degrees, then the rest at 220. I have a no-heat plate, and found I can use blue tape (no heat so Kapton tape isn't required) and a spritz of Aquanet hairspary, but it works awesome. I am passing this along because this wasn't the case a couple days ago and this is new find how good this is. It is just the right amount of tackiness, but very releasable, with a firm pull or with a dull putty knife. Moving on to trying larger and more complex outputs.
