You say it doesn't need any supports, but I'm looking at the lip above the head bulb and that looks like a 90 degree overhang...?

I ran the parts through Meshmixer to remove the support tabs. The way S3D slices them they'd be a pain to remove cleanly. I wasn't able to clean up the artifacts on the beak though. They seem to be byproducts of the modeling process; maybe when I'm more proficient w/ Meshmixer.

I was going to ask why you didn't make this print-in-place (like the octopus) then I figured if someone gets too rough w/ it it just pops apart instead of ruining the part. And at least initially it can be posed.

Squids have 8 arms and 2 tentacles, not the other way around.
