  1. Thanks Daid for the tips, I just wanted to test the "simple" mode with this example. The next dino will go through the expert mode with more playing around, with definitely less support material. In my case it was just too much of it. Talking about support material - is there any way to solve situations within Cura where support material should start somewhere above level 0 (like this example)? If not possible, is it somewhere on the wish-list?
  2. Thanks flouSH! No, it is a model exported from DAZ Studio, edited in Rhinoceros and cleaned with netfabb Studio. Online (free) dinosaurs are hard to find and are mostly over-simplified or with bad meshes. I had to make the foot wider because the first layer had a too small area and could not stick well to the print bed (and, of course detached from the print bed and moved away after half an hour printing time).
  3. Here is a Triceratops made for my kids using the simple mode high quality print in Cura (thanks Daid for the amazing piece of software). Lots of support structure which was hard to remove so the head is a bit clumsy. Temperature 215° (heavy stringing), silver PLA from GRRF. The print took 2h and 45 min.
