Hey mz4250! I love these dragons, especially the wyrmling model. Unfortunately, my slicer seems to have some sort of problem with it:

As you can see, there's a few vertical layers missing and I have no idea why. Any guesses? Is this strictly a problem with the slicer or is there anything odd going on with the model in those areas. The discontinuity on the left wing is big enough to prevent it from printing successfully. Thanks for your thoughts, I love the models!

Hello. Run the model through Windows 3D Builder. It will take care of that error. I'm not sure why that even happens, but Builder fixes it for sure.

Thanks a lot! I wasn't aware of that program, but it ran some sort of repair and then everything sliced and printed perfectly. Thanks! http://kortham.net/temp/upshot_6Ca7Rl8B.png

The wings of the copper dragon don't look the same on the full model as they do when printed separately. Is this how it's supposed to be? Could you upload a full model with the wings like you have in the first image of the painted model?

This was on purpose. There are two different versions. I'll see what I can do but it won't be for a while. I'm rather busy. The Blender file is there if you want to make it yourself though.

Thanks for the awesome model! I've printed all of the pieces of the largest one, but the ends of the neck don't seem to mate properly with the body and the frills. Should they mate seamlessly like the other joints?

Its like that on purpose. I like that look. So you just glue it together and that's it.

Whew! Thanks, I thought I had done something wrong. I'll post pics once assembled.

Nah you good my dude :-)
