is 0.15 the recommended layer height for this model?

Printing finer layers will give better results on curved top layers, but is that good for the hairy part?

The green showing is not terrible, it is not a hole. The red color is the most outside wall and green is the next one, they are both walls.

You could try the 'adaptive layers' under the experimental tab, in the layer view set the color scheme to Layer thickness instead of Line Type. This looks at the curvature of the model and will print thinner layers at the places you selected (horizontal areas), an uses thicker layers on vertical parts. This result in a few extra hours in this case and might not be good for the hair.

    The hair will look very different.  Some will be thin.  Some will be thick.  It may look better or worse than the typical hairy lion but it will definitely look different!  I would probably stick to .15 or .2 layers but I'm very curious to see what it would look like with variable layers.  The top of the head should be fine with any layer height.  You can always do a "comb over" if you don't like the top of his head being hairless.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
