Came out like shit. Support material on the face is a bad idea.

speed 50mm/s
layer high: 0.2
support type: everywhere
platfrom adhesion type: brim (very importent, without it, the printhead always kick off the objekt).
infill: 20% (but maybe you use more, cause the tail may break if you children plays with it like mine)
i also made a meshmixer supported version of the dragon standing on the head, but standart cura support worked better this time.

What kind of settings and support are you using to print this type of thing? I am new to 3d printing, have a mendel prusa reprap 3d printer. I tried this last night, and it was a disaster, I had more support structure than dragon, and it still messed it up. Any tips/hints would be greatly appreciated. support/ raft settings, print speeds etc? All would be helpful.

that would make my son and his best frind very happy i think! ;o)
i already printed 3 of it, for him and his frinds... (printing it this way takes now only 3 hours, not like before 4 to 8 hours)

Loots like it came out great! Nice Coloring. When i get the time, I may go into Tinkercad and some other programs to try to mod the files so that the nightfury has the mechanical tail half.
