I fail to see how this could possibly print. I loaded it into S3D and sliced. None of the branches connect to anything.

The branches don't connect together in the model, but without any retraction they create a loop.
I don't own S3D so I don't know how you would configure it.

Using Slic3r Prusa Edition version > 1.41 the most important configuration options are:

  • 0% fan speed
  • 0 mm retraction (disable)

Those work flawlessly for me!

(Turning up your print speed and temperature makes the branches bend more.)

Also try 1.05% extrusion multiplier if the branches aren't connecting to the trunk properly.

Please share your results after you've tested these tips!
