Here's a picture of the Sports Sight Easy Print version, printed upright with no supports.

The stringing was easily removed with the cutting knife.

I also sanded the base of the foot a bit, not sure why my printer was a bit untidy there in this print. The imperfections are actually subtle, it's just the flash that makes everything look so messy.

How do you actually print this? It looks like cleaning up supports inside would be really tedious but without them I can't imagine the top of the sight printing well

Have a look at the new thing file "Spots Sight Easy Print" I just uploaded ... it's slightly modified so that it can be printed standing on the rear, needing no supports at all.

I'll also re-release the OpenSCAD code for the easy-print style of sight as soon as I have cleared it up a bit, and maybe made it customizer-compatible.

Thanks for the head-up! :-) I had my own sight printed by a commercial service, not thinking about easy printing yet.
