Wow... This is goin on my To-Print list for sure!
Sure I don't even have a printer yet, but... I literally ordered one at 04 this night. x) so.. gimme a couple of days to recieve it, then some weeks to set it up, tweak, test print, learn the ropes, and get both test prints and some other easier prints out first, then I will for sure attempt this one within this spring! Before summer!

And oh. I am totally okay with it not being entirely accurate (which some other state), because... 1: you never stated that it was perfectly accurate, so.. artist freedom ey!
and 2. HOLY CRAP IT'S AMAZING AND THE DETAILS ARE GORGEOUS!
oh.. and bonus 3: It's Disney! That's an instant win from me! <3

I'll add photos when I do make this one for sure, but as mentioned, might take a month or two so I have time to get, setup and learn the machine first. :)

Is there a way to make a tearaway layer under the castle? I can't get it to stick to my heated baseplate.

Could you see if you could fix that problem

one thing in the model is wrong. if you look at picture the main tower is supposed to be taller so that part behind it finishes at where the balcony is on the tall tower. Take a look at the picture https://media-cdn.tripadvisor.com/media/photo-s/11/f9/0d/30/cinderella-s-castle-magic.jpg

My guess (not the creator so I'm just guessing) is that it might be a design choice due to height limitations at the creators printer perhaps.
I mean, if I had sculpted this castle (i wouldn't, because I haven't learned to sculpt at all yet) I'd make sure it would fit my printer. :)

On the other hand, sure, it could be scaled down... forgot about that..
Hm.. well.. it might also just be the case of "Artist freedom" :) which I'm very up for, unless the file specifically states 100% accuracy, which it doesn't. :P
So I think it's still perfectly fine with the shorter tower, because it wasn't stated that it's 100% accurate. :)

Great work! I used tree supports in Cura and 20% infill (totally overkill) and it took 26.5 hours to print. Comparing to photos I have of the actual castle, I would recommend stretching it slightly in the Z direction while slicing, which I intend to do on my next attempt. I also noticed a missing spire/turret on the right side. Regardless...this model is awesome!!! Thank you!

Great professional quality design. Thanks for sharing!

Any supports needed?

Depending on your printer and printer setup, supports might help at the bridge and tunnel

I can't seem to get this to slice with Slic3r or Cura. Not entirely sure what is going on.

Maybe reinstall or update to the latest version of cura... worked for me on Cura 4

Awesome! Your model has been selected as one of the best 3D Printed Ornaments this year! Search "Top Free 3d Printed Ornaments Printing Ninja" in google to see (sorry thingiverse bans url addresses)

What are you slicing with? SLICER gives weird results (not detecting the solid walls)

This is a gorgeous model. So much detail. Great Work!

I agree! Ill be printing this tonight on my Makeit Pro M
