Took a little over 14hrs on my i3mk3 to print this and a lizard on a single print. Snake ended up measuring about 4ft 8in when straightened out.

Cool design! This print keeps failing for me, though. One or two pieces pop off the printer and messes everything else up. Do you know what I can do to help with that?

does it pop off because the head touch the piece ? if yes it's a curling problem, you have to find better parameters for your filament, or try with another filament

I do a Z hop of 2 mm on retraction, so I was thinking it would be fine, but I will see if I can find better settings
Thanks!

Thank you for this thing! Thumbs up to you!

What is the intended size of this model? When loaded into Slic3r its 464x453x26mm which is huge..

Since 26mm = 1 inch I am wondering if its scaled in Imperial? I know it can be scaled to any dimension, but I am curious what the size its meant to be?

good point, my print is 1cm high, there must be a conversion somewhere !

I'll look at that, thanks for reporting.

I uploaded updated version, more compact, clean, and 10mm high

this file gives the 130cm snake.

How long'd this take to print!?

depends a lot of scale and parameters of course. if 10mm high it would take 10 hours on my small printer.
