Mine printed fine sliced by cura 14 on octoprint. There is a lot of time/filament wasting internal structure to the head that could be cleaned up. Pretty cool, though.

my s3d had problem at recognising the hair at .2mm and not resized,
then I tried at .1mm and everything crashed :D
is that normal? O_o

I do not know what to say, modify other parameters keeping 0.2 layer thickness until you see that graphically in curing the hairs appear. Of all forms, this afternoon I will upload the gcode page that I used.
Best regards

I had to bring stl in to 3dbuilder and repair it first and that took a long time also had to lower it .5mm in slicer strange geometry at base
printer is printing this right now pics and video to follow

i cant get it to slice correctly, i have tried with simplify, different printers, different profiles, even in cura and slic3r. after i slice it, the hair lines disappear and the print loses its base. any ideas?

Have you climbed the model? With layer height 0.2 mm and 0.4 mm nozzle comes out well with cura

is it oki to resize??

If you reduce the model you may have trouble recognizing hair

same way the lion that was featured was made

Yes, it is the same technology as that used in lion.
Best regards

Hello Friend,
The hair diameter is 0.5mm for recognition with a 0.4mm nozzle. If you scale to less you will have to modify the nozzle diameter so that it recognizes the new size of hair. You will have to try and play with the parameters. a greeting
