Spoiled red fdplast abs well printed, model without errors. Thank you! The settings are standard abs, without blowing. Treatment with acetone.

Printed out great but falls forward when given anything to hold. I may try out what another user said and heat him up to bend him back a bit to get a better center of gravity. Love this print regardless.

So I realize now that I left out a pretty key detail in my instructions: I scaled this guy x1.5. From legs to shoulder, mine is about 60mm and can hold a sharpie. I also used a rectangular fill pattern with a .4 density.

printed at 10x(about 35mm to shoulders), when taped down it works great, may print larger one with base to be free standing.

I needed to scale this up by a factor of 10 to get a figure around 35mm high. I also ended up dipping the legs in hot water after assembly so I could lean the body back enough for it to balance when holding a pencil. As it is the hands are in front of the knees, so he falls over when given a pencil to present..
Still, a great figure, makes me feel positively regal!

I don't know if I am doing something wrong, but I cannot seem to get this to work. it looks fine in Slic3r, but when I open the G-Code with Pronterface it shows up extremely small, prints a couple layers, goes up 10 layers without printing, then attempts to try to print more layers with nothing under it.
Please help.

Hey, did you ever get this to work?
I made this back when I had no concept of measurements in Blender, so you'll need to scale it up by about 10 or so....however big you want it, really. But he might tip over if you multiply his size by anything less than 10.

can it hold my tooth brush?
