Printing 13 hours 12mm file!

Recommended Posts

Hi. We are trying to print a figurine of us and I am doing this at a space where we can only use the ultimaker for two hours at a time because we share the printer. 

 

I want the figurine to be of 127 mm / about 4 inches. However when I scale it to that and want to print it says it will be 7meters and takes 13 hours to print? 

 

Any ideas how we can make it print faster?

 

thank you so much

Try sending it to shapeways or 3dhubs.  You can get it to print a little faster but not much.  Send it out.  It's very easy to upload a model to either of these sites and get a quick quote.
