I have been struggling for 4 days now to get this dragon printed. Argh! Cura simply will not add any supports under the wings! Everything else seems to be working fine. What am i missing? I'm a complete noob, so any help would be appreciated.

If you haven't still printed this and to others that might struggle with this. I just printed a red dragon with same pose using Cura. I lovered dragon on z-axis until base wouldn't be printed and used tree support. Check print in layer view before printing it in order to see how supports will be build. It is usually easier to print miniatures without base.

In the individual parts the head is not even close to being cut right from the neck, it's not an issue with my print tolerances if i open cura and line both parts up the neck seems to be at least 10 percent larger.

That was on purpose. I like the look when you glue the head to the neck and there is that bigger space for shade.

I am printing the individual parts but having trouble with the wings. Can you tell me what settings you used? I’m using a Monoprice Maker Select V2 3D printer,

Orient the wings like this with a ton of supports: https://imgur.com/a/MhniN

And here are my cura settings: https://imgur.com/a/fE5R8

Thanks so much for the quick reply.

Hi,
The head is not fitting on the neck. It is 10% to big and seems to be not the right one.
Could you please fix this?

Just kidding :-P . Yeah the size was a bit off. Its fixed

That is the right head. Its sized up so there is a small differentiation under the neck. If you don't like it you can alter as you wish in the Blender file. But I like it this way.
