Well, the title says it all.

Bidon

The option of splitting the part into two exists but is undesirable.

Can't think of a position to have the optimum print quality while keeping the part stable during the print.

    I recently printed something slightly similar and succeeded by putting the part on its tail. I added some one line thick perpendicular support sheets to the lower few centimeters and used a brim. The support was easy to break off. My object was about 15cm in height.

    I think splitting off the "nose" to get two flat bases for the print would be the best really. If not I would print it with the nose down and add concentric circles for support that I would break away afterwards. Both approaches would need some sanding afterwards if surface quality is of high priority. But I think a single seam would be easier to get rid of rather than lots of contact points around the nose. You'd also get some pretty bad overhangs from the looks of it.
