Had some problems getting the heart into the dragon's arms, without breaking off that foot. Any suggestions? I printed it in two pieces with a Makerbot Rep 2.

I printed in PLA and heated the foot a bit in hot water. Then slipped the heart in and smoothed the foot back down.
Not sure a reliable method if you used ABS. You could try holding a soldering iron under the leg, just don't touch it.
You will have to move quickly to get the heart in before the ABS cools.

this model will be the greatest valentines gift.

Just saw that you've already did this after I've uploaded my parts version. Well done! :)

And I just saw that I got a feature. :) Or I should say you did. :-D Thanks for the great model!

Nice, this little guy actually made a tripple feature :-D

Well played to you. I think you have a winner.

Worked pretty much perfectly with dualstrusion. I did make a few minor changes to re-position and re-size it by doing this:

scale(2) translate([-17.17, -20.8, 0]) {
import("heartless-dragon.stl", convexity=40);
//import("dragons-heart.stl", convexity=40);

Yes! I just clicked the I Like It button 10 times.

Since it turns into the Unlike button, don't you need to click it an odd number of times? ;)

Put a gem in it's claws so it's less "February".

And that's what I love about this place. I was thinking it would be cool if Andreas made a dragon with something non-Valentine but I didn't think to do it. :)

Yeah I'll work that up. Unless someone else beats me to it.

Haha, given it's expression the only other thing I can see it holding is a teddy-bear.

You kidding? Dragons are always like that about their hordes of gold and jewels.
