Hi, the skins are a challenge due to shrinkage and warping along with lots of sections / holes. Printing any curved thin piece on the curved edge will result in warping (wavy straight pieces) as the cooling and associated shrinkage causes the printed section to move back and forth slightly. Curved parts are best printed with the straight edge on the bed or alternatively flat with the dome up (like a bridge) but this results in lots of sanding and finishing as the layers are visible at the top. All of this plus lots of support material whichever way you choose made me go for lots of small parts welded together.
