The snowflake needs support to print properly. The issue is that the two tips with pins that insert into the ring are wider than the snowflake, so the majority of the flake is not flat on the print bed. If you don't want to print with supports there is a fix in the remixes.

Hi, is this why when I try printing it on my Ender 3 literally a minute in to it after printing the ovals at the bottom and top it turns in to a stringy mess? the bed is levelled ok too. :)

I'll try again tomorrow with supports enabled

Yes, this is why you got spaghetti - because the first layer of the majority of the print does not touch the print bed. After finding the remix fix I stopped printing with supports and I don't have to remove anything. The fix is very subtle and just removes a small bump at the pins.

Ahh, many thanks. I spent hours/days thinking I'd done something wrong with the bed levelling. Merry Christmas
