Where did you use white? Led plate?
I printed the back without support and the visible part came out just fine.

the white was for the plate on the inside that holds the led bulbs.

Hey, are you sure the LED holes are for 3mm LED's? They seem to be for 5mm LED's. I bought some 3mm, and they don't even come close to fitting, and measuring the holes seem to indicate they're 5mm. Also, what's your recommendation for out to keep the eyes in place? They're a perfect fit making it hard to glue them in.

hey foldor, sorry the leds didnt fit for you. As far asI remember I used 3mm but had to drill it out to get it to fit. I held the eyes in with C.A. glue

hey does this need supports ?

Yeah, the front and rear pieces needed support for sure, but that was before I upgraded to the Noctua fan, so maybe it could be done. I remember the support was very difficult to remove around the eyes and if my memory serves me correctly, I may have had to clean it up quite a bit. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have!

Wel thanks very much for the info :) and yes I hope to print it this week :)
